Designed by Weiran Tao, 'Subjective Objects' won the Fashion Comms Category in the Global Design Graduate Show in collaboration with Gucci 2021
Here, the daily objects are no longer “invisible” to people and they act like a reliable guardian who has tangible feeling in the process of interactions with humans and always keeping the joyfulness in the moments of people staying at home.
Weiran's project is about simulating a bionic perspective from the object itself to humans.
Weiran also wants to convey the message that our surroundings are powerful, and we can see things at different angles that are sometimes so different and so unexpected that we can always be ready for any challenges in life.

"It has been almost two years since I graduated, and I have spent these two years exploring multidisciplinary fields to constantly refresh my design thinking. I am currently pursuing a master's degree in an interactive communication (itp) program at nyu."
"Although I am involved with multiple projects that were focused on physical computing, 3d modelling, creative programming, and machine learning, I still do not want to limit myself to current forms of creative technologies."

"I also started expanding my range of knowledge into more learning towards neuroscience and biofabrication studies. Under the guidance of my most enjoyable course microbio-lab, I am honoured to have a chance to participate in a biodesign challenge held in July 2022."
"I am very curious about an environment where on a micro-scale, various cells are engaging simultaneously, waving the dots in our reality and if humankind is more of a destroyer or a collaborator." - Weiran (Erin) Tao
