Cocoon

This piece is based on a four-character Chinese idioms. The meaning behind of this old saying is someone weave a cocoon and get imprisoned in it. Iā€™m trying to convey the idea that human beings are over-consuming and suffering from the consequence of our over-consuming through the recycled plastic strings. In the meantime, women, as the main contributors of the consumption culture, are suffering even more from the beauty ideal, that is created by the consumption culture.
