ZOE LIAO is an object designer who is committed to evoking a philosophical stance through experience. Her practice involves humans, objects, time and realities.
Her influences include Sigmund Freud and Martin Heidegger who develop and extend her understanding of humanity and the meaning behind the object in a conceptual way. She likes to raise questions about today’s society by creating alternative realities. Objects, as the things that surround us always play an important role in her alternative realities by showing multiple functions. She believes what should matter in designing an object is whether or not it is true, not whether it looks “good”.
