About Me

Yin Zhang ( 张 寅 )

Rather than confining herself in the role of a designer, 

Yin Zhang identifies as a multi-disciplinary artist employing fibre material and structures as her medium. 

Through her work, Yin often attempts to reflect, breakdown, and visualize abstract, non-tangible concepts such as spirituality, ritualistic behaviours, and the ephemeral human-nature experience. 

Via each of her art pieces, she proposes personal questions of discussion and shares with audiences her process of self-discovering. During her leisure time, Yin enjoys traveling and conducting field research, immerse herself in with makers, artisans, craft-people she meets.
