Spring up II - Coexistence
Spring up II - Coexistence serves as an evolutionary product of the sound-sensitive installation of Spring up - it is a replication of its DNA. This continuation of life is just like cell division, the fundamental process of organism growth and reproduction in which one cell is usually split into two. The sound-sensitive devices of Spring up II - Coexistence are comprised of motor mechanisms that seem to contain small life-like organisms. These organisms are very shy, sensitive and cur ...

When they hear sounds from their surrounding environment, they stick their heads out to observe this world. When their surroundings are quiet, they will promptly extend their heads outward. An even quieter environment leads them to come out even more. Ye ...

Time in Between
Time in Between features urban views from both Taipei and Paris. It documents a compressed 24 hours in these two places with 24 locations and 24 Taiwanese people strolling in Paris. By seamlessly overlaying urban images from the two cities at different hours of the day, 24 hours in the existence of a strange composite zone emerges. The present in the past, the present in the present and the present in the future coexist in temporal simultaneity. The very moment I have just experienced ...

Purification
Women are as water; water is the medium for purity and also the sustainer of life. Purification was created during a residency in New Zealand at Unitec’s, Department of Visual Art and Design. The work the integrates local Maori myths, symbol and Nu Shu, in order to construct new mysterious characters. The concept comes from both water and the water’s surface, symbolizing purification, transformation, fusion and breakthrough of the psychical structure. The reflective water surface works ...
