Yin Xiuzhen’s Portable Cities

Yin Xiuzhen is a Chinese artist from Beijing who makes incredible sculptures made out of recycled clothing. I really liked her series called Portable Cities in which she recreates places she has traveled to in medium sized suitcases – she makes every famous structure from these places entirely from cloth. It’s really cool how she reinterprets something we normally pack in suitcases into carrying meaning beyond its initial function.
