Perfect 10
Interactive digital installation. The interactive project, Perfect 10, is a commentary on the fast growing trend among young women in Asia to get plastic surgery. Statistic shows that, in South Korea, one in five women have went under the knifes in pursuit of the ideal appearance which is racialized with the angelo-phied standards of beauty - double-lidded eyes, straight pointy nose, slender legs…etc. The latter surgery is especially horrifying. The procedure actually severs a nerve in ...

WTBA Championship Boxing
non-linear, real-time animation. Internet has become a major form of everyday communication, even more so than postal mail and telephone. Unlike the conventional ways of communicating, Internet communication mechanisms such as email and instant messaging are text-based. Since there is no voice to be heard and no handwriting to be seen, the messages often time become generic and lack of human emotions.

The Great American Tour
The Great American Tour is a symbolic visual journey of the artist’s learning and growth in the United States. Digital photographs of nine museums and three well-known artists’ neighborhoods in New York were “personalized” by strategically replacing the “@” symbol found in the image source code with the name of the artist, “C. J. Yeh.” As a result, two very antithetical ideas emerged from these altered images: one singularly egotistical and the other as openly universal; each is the outcome o ...

I Hereby Declare
I Hereby Declare challenges the concept of identity through the experimental process of incorrect editing, which is one of the several approaches to databending. The digital image files of two national flags (The United States and Taiwan) were opened via the software program, Audacity, which is intended solely for editing sound files. The artist literally forced himself into being a part of these countries by combining the sound recordings of him singing both national anthems accompanied by t ...
