Erin Yang is an accessory and jewellery designer from China, holds a BA degree in Jewellery Design from China University of Geosciences (Beijing) and a diploma in gemmology issued by Fellowship of Gemological Association of Great Britain. Her practice is mostly about philosophy, space, culture and psychology. In the design process she always combines digital technology with traditional handicraft techniques and infuse her work with the power of healing. Erin has always believed that regardless of technology and the times, there is a place for handmade, and that the purity and emotion it embodies cannot be replaced.

carry a spiritual space



In Chinese philosophy, it is believed that when people focuses their spirit on nature, they can feel the infinite changes of the universe and thus can forget about time and the worries of the moment. It is also widely used in the formation of Chinese gardens. According to Freudian psychoanalysis, in dreams one temporarily forgets the rational dichotomy of thinking and the suppressed subconscious is released and healed, which is also the basis of surrealism. The architects create utopian spaces - with light as the core, combined with colour and water to give a strong emotional experience, as if you were in a surreal world and thus forget the worries of real life. This project combines philosophical and spatial language, looking at how healing spaces can be created in both Chinese and Western cultural contexts, finding commonalities and combining them in corresponding experiments. The process of working with digital and physical practice is synchronous and influences each other.
