digital folklore

This project started with the creation of a fashion collection and developed into performances and an installation that explore emerging culture. Yelena was inspired by her multicultural background and online existence since her early teens. Through her story, she defined a whole generation. What is left over when age long traditions clash with modern subcultures? Young people are the ones deciding what norms, values and aesthetics they want to let live. In this ongoing struggle for survival, idea's clash and become something new. This project was an attempt to define what happens and make it tangible. A quest to define her culture on the boarders of where traditional folklore fades into digital noise.
