The origin of Song Wang’s collection was a concern with the emotional dialogue in groups and how interpersonal relationships between an individual and a group interact. In this collection, she explores the phenomenon in China of traditional family values setting expected standards of behavior for individual family members. When women reach 25 years, they are expected to get married and by the age of 30 years to become mothers. Single women who don’t marry and have children by the expected age can experience negative emotions such as anxiety and disgust. Family and friends may also have negative feelings towards the woman.
When people experience strong emotions, their skin temperature changes. Song designed a series of necklaces and bracelets that indicate temperature changes. She combined heat sensitive materials with acrylic; the color will change when the piece touches the body and the emotions of the wearer become visible.
