Chinese jewellery artist Xinyi Chen, founder of EÈ CHAN, creates fashion pieces that wander the boundary between the physical and the digital, exploring a new way of living in digital awe and pleasure.
Since 2016, Xinyi has experimented with the use of electronic components as gemstones in jewellery-making. Acting within a broader context of sustainability and the younger generation's awareness of electronic waste, China’s WEEE Recycling Centre formed part of the supply chain for Xinyi's debut collection, DATA GARDEN.
"We are living in an age of waste," says Xinyi. "I hope people could return to this Earth’s reality from the virtual, rethinking what it means to live in this rapidly changing world and reflect upon the essentials of who they are."
Xinyi is a Central Saint Martins graduate and winner of the Bright Young Gems sustainability category.
