Market Stall--Shezi Market
By leaving specialized art spaces and entering the public space. I face audiences unprepared to see art without the protection of the Art aura to promote the kind of art that I acknowledge, and also to absorb nourishment from popular culture and grow my art content.

Market Stall--Pier 2 Market
I transform the resilient vitality of Taiwanese traditional markets and the public's desire for plentifulness and joy into visual artworks. By combining mixed media, painting, readymades, 2D, 3D, installation, and performance, I utilize a cocktail-like mode of creation.

Bustling
By utilizing cheap readymades that's in abundance in daily life, I combine them into a kind of energetic collage imagery that is full of vitality. Each readymade, from it's design, fabrication, and use by different people, start to take on different appearances and give off different feels, just like people do. I assemble these usually unremarkable readymades and create a scenery that is full of life.
