Statement

From the moment of our birth, we are constantly creating something. It is invisible, subtle, and subsidiary but omnipresent. When people pass by, they feel the wind blown by each other. When we put ear on the floor, we feel the vibration and sound of someone walking. We are exposed to numerous external stimulations/provocations and become insensible.

My practice has been deeply inspired by theatrical images and the moments captured on a stage and auditorium. A linear story gradually changes through dispersion and concentration. The reinterpreted shapes, emotions, and stories compose a space which invites the audience and continues to create new narratives with them.

Each piece of work reacts to the movement of the one in the space. It visualises the invisible evidence of one’s existence. As everyone moves differently, the work reacts in different ways. Through this spatial experience, it enables the audience to be aware of their movement and how influential they are to the consequences of the situation.
