Issue “Seed”

The concept of “ecology” has been extended from the hippie thought in the 1970s. Even though the concept of “sustainability” is not yet mature, people put on outdoor clothing and go out, on the street or actually to the nature, starting to use clothing as a medium to present a way of thinking referring to the earth that we live on. Now, because of too much “ambition”, the siren of environment rings harshly! In 2020, human beings transit from the original position of observation, challenge, and possession, to the position of “protection”, so as to stay in the same line with the nature, and try to fill up the dent caused by the past injuries and make small compensations.

But, it is already too late for now?

「生態」概念自70年代的嬉皮思想開始延展,縱然「永續」的概念尚未成熟,人們卻也穿上戶外服飾上街,開啟以服裝為媒介,從街頭或實際介入自然,來作為思考地球原生環境的表現。如今因為過於龐大的「野心」,環境的警報聲淒厲響起!2020年的人類之於自然,正從原來面對面的觀察、挑戰、佔有,轉以列為同一陣線的「保護」為原則,試圖填補過去的傷,做出微小的補償。

但,一切是否還來得及?
