‘Thaumatrope’ is a compelling fashion editorial that explores the perception of fantasy
and futuristic worlds. Humankind has never stopped exploring the future. This fascination
has formed the cornerstone of the artistic conception of near-futurism, and the scientific myth of multi-dimensional space has become an extension of visual art. Yuwei’s extension of visual art highlight futuristic, reflection and otherworldly are the foundation for Thaumatrope. Thaumatrope seeks to explore this narrative visually through 3 dimensional sets, sleek in colour and texture. Embracing digital mediums. The creative direction behind Thaumatrope highlights textures of metallic, plastic and mirrored. Modern technology has given me future visions, probably spatial, from one-dimensional space to two-dimensional space to 3D. To allow the attention to generating the room for the imagination.
