DescriptionMy artistic practice has been influenced by my experience of living, studying and working between China and America. I am curious both about personal emotion, and about the larger factors at work in society and cultural contexts which influence individuals deeply. I am interested in how technological developments bring about synchronization and globalization in communication. Topics I explore and challenge the audience to experience in my work include: What do we receive from the image world through diverse cultures? How do different media interact? How can we understand that truism that “seeing is believing” in a contemporary context, and how is that belief made real at the level of our bodies and senses?
