| Art | Mika Tajima: Deep Focus

Pieces from the show that Mary Ping collaborated on

Artist Mika Tajima and designer Mary Ping collaborate on a performance within After the Martini Shot, Tajima’s SAM Next exhibition. Throughout the day, the exhibition functions as an open set photo shoot directed by the artist and the designer, involving models and a photography crew. Using folding and pleating techniques to create collaborative sculptural garments from printed images, the collaborators extend the topography of the objects by folding the entire scene into the subject of photography production.
