Scenery other end 2018

There are five single-channel video clips displayed in this work. I make the sound surrounded in this massive pentangle space and painted as dark green.
It’s a metaphor for love and the destiny of our life. Let’s try to imagine you’re entering a prairie when you’re just a newborn baby and all you can do is keep crawling because there’s no chance to make a stop. You keep moving ahead to somewhere you assumed it’s a forward place. There’s no rule or order in this case. Afterwards, you touched and acknowledged there’s someone else with you in this
journey, therefore, you both depend on each other and marching on in this endless grassland no matter the sun is scorching hot or there’s already numerous bruises on both of yours body. It’s about a statement of life in my opinion. Life is all about moving on and attach someone else.

Manic summer 2018

It’s a four single-channel work projected on a teller room colour with 85 per cent grey in the room. There are four off-white screens hang on each side of wall which is also where the video should be projected on. The audiences could also find out there’s a slightly burning smell in the space too.
The theme of this artwork is about the statement of being uncontrollable. It’s about curbing the inner side of you when you feel the grown and its existence.
Tweens and teens are all about finding and chasing their existence from using their own body as proof. It started from the complicated feeling about themselves and outside of the world. Who am I and how can I suffer in this big world with my style? This kind of saying keep surrounded them when they try to find their own and there’s still countless denial and worried are trying to find a way to break out from their body to find their existence much stronger than ever.

Shivering wall 2019

There’s four single-channel displayed in a huge dark room with rectangle shape. The video would be projected on two short side and one long side respectively in the room. The last space would be covered a black flannel and with bass speaker on it for producing strong low frequency movement.
It’s a self-examined process for assess your present time. In the regular bass sound surround space, you could find there’s a few teenagers are having a madness house party, and there’s a girl awake but exhausted for being there. There’s a slightly smog or light gently but regularly move in the space. The smog represented a spiritual inside a space. It could be the spiritual from you or others. It’s like you are just in a conference or a party and suddenly there’s something pull your spirit away from your body. It makes you look at yourself in a different angle, but you’re still in the group. What would you do and what’s the connection between you and others?
