Hybrid Garden is a project exploring the beauty of nature and hybridity,itoriginatesfrom Xufei’schildhoodmemory. Her grandma used to work in a local hospital in Beijing, China, who would bring back Chinese herbs from time to time. There was one with a body of baby moth, dry and stiff like a piece of wood, but keeping the perfect shape of the worm, and Xufeicalled them 'the Zombie worms'. Since then shewas fascinated by the hybrid creation of nature, and underinfluences of mythology and films, she started to create herown dark fantasy, and bringsthat magical world onto printed textile design.
