With fashion and technology as its theme, these recent stainless steel sculptures by Liao Yibai are definitely awe-inspiring.
Portraying these inanimate objects in stainless steel, Liao Yibai is touching upon the lack of longevity of these consumer items as their popularity rises and falls. With this medium however, Liao Yibai makes these objects last for much longer than their real-life counterparts.
Implications - With fashion fads coming in and out each season, it becomes the goal of clothing companies, or companies in general, to create products which have longer lasting power. This will therefore justify that consumers pay more for a certain product that lasts a long time as opposed to less for a piece that is only popular for one season.
