Nothingness

Design and art direction of Nothingness embroidered cap. Typeset in Favorit Hangul by Dinamo, with custom-drawn Chinese character, and embroidered by Platinum Stitches in Altadena on garment washed cotton chino twill cap in an edition of 24. Based on director Yasujiro Ozu’s gravestone, which only has the old Chinese character ‘Mu’ (Japanese/Korean) inscribed (‘Wu’ in Chinese) which means ‘Nothingness’ and acknowledges the transitory nature of objects. Special thanks to Kaming Lee.
