In this keynote presentation, the fashion designer and UQAM professor Ying Gao will discuss some of the overarching themes of her creative career, her most challenging projects, and her current research creation interests. Taking the form of a conversation with friend and colleague Joanna Berzowska, the keynote will tackle the aesthetic, the narrative, the technical, and the philosophical aspects of Ying Gao’s material and technological innovations, questioning the limits of human perception as well as the liminal spaces and the intersections of the corporeal, the material, and the immaterial in her work. The conversation will include elements from the Eames Design Q&A and the Proust Questionnaire, a Rorschach test, as well as longer reflections about her creative development, her design career and its important milestones, her research-creation philosophy, her inspirations, and her moments of creative ecstasy.

Activity in English and French languages.
