I am a young artist from Taiwan who not only has a great ambition and passion in art but also has lots of interests in exploring various materials to approach my artworks.
   
         I am dedicated to create a dream environment by approaching both sound and space and allowing the viewer to experience them in a sensorial way. Moreover, I also approach stop-motion animation to transform my dream into visual narratives. Most of my works are inspired by the nature, such as flowers and plants. It is also connected to my childhood memories and grew up in the countryside, while I spent all of my times with my grandparent in their garden. I like to use playful and childlike ways to communicate with serious and adult subjects. Thus, I’m very interested in the contradictions between childlike qualities and the darkness behind it.

  Additionally, by transforming my studio into a dream place, I propose further for it to engage with reality. Through a wearable sculpture, I perform an exploration of the urban landscape in specific time and places, continuing these clashes between a surreal context and real life. In this piece, I try to express the loneliness and lost of myself while dreaming by presenting the emptiness of the bustling places in New York City to create a surreal contrast. Taking it further, I propose a performance to interact/engage with the public and explore more possibilities from its potential performativity.
