CONFESSIONS: YI FEI CHEN

After an altercation with a tutor, Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Yi-Fei Chen created this visual metaphor to show her personal struggle with speaking her mind.

Recently on display at Dutch Design Week, Chen's brass Tear Gun fires water collected as she cries.

Chen was born in Taiwan, where she was brought up with a strong sense of authority and taught that disagreeing with teachers was rude.

Chen has now visualised this personal struggle with speaking her mind as a conceptual graduation project – a brass gun that fires tears she has collected.

CONFESSIONS: THIRZA SCHAAP

Thirza Schaap, artist, is the author of "Plastic Ocean", an artistic project that, by creating awareness of marine pollution, seeks to reduce the amount of plastic getting into the oceans. 
In making artistic sculptures out of the objects she finds, she tries to evoke an emotional response from her audience by creating a contradiction. A clash between initial aesthetic attraction and a second look: repulsion and the realisation of the tragedy trash causes.
