My jealousy is a rose

Class of: 2025

Major: Illustration BFA

Medium: Wearable artwork

Faculty: Tamar Samir

Prompt: Create a resilience wearable

My theme is jealousy. I will design two pieces: the short top and glasses. I choose white and red because jealousy is a common emotion, so I prefer white, which is common in nature. In China, we often use “red eyes” to express jealousy, and red has a strong emotional effect of choosing red for the short top. At the same time, roses will appear in many of my wearable artworks because roses usually represent beautiful but dangerous things. On the one hand, jealousy will encourage people to make progress, but on the other hand, it will also bring destructive emotions to people.
