2008 – present
Taipei , Taiwan
Through my paintings and animation installations from recent years, I raise questions about how humans will move into the next era.
DESCRIBE YOUR PRACTICE IN THREE WORDS:
Keywords, Questions, Reflection
WHERE DO YOU GO OR WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU GET STUCK ON A PROJECT?
Wash dishes or have a hot bath. This process, in particular, can slow down the tempo of my thoughts, let me rethink and organize creative ideas.
NAME A BOOK YOU THINK EVERY CREATIVE SHOULD READ.
Various types of encyclopedias.
WHAT DESIGN TOOL CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
As I’m passionate about experimenting with various techniques, there is no tool that is necessary or unnecessary to use. Nevertheless, I always carry a notebook to record memories, sudden inspirations, or ideas.
WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
The work currently exhibited in the 2016 Taipei Biennale, Escape to earth: 100 ways of surviving on earth. I think this work completely shows my creative thought at this present stage.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE CREATIVITY?
Cleverly expressing thoughts on various topics through a unique vocabulary while continually exploring new possibilities.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON CURRENTLY?
I just finished a group exhibition in London and in the Taipei Biennial. Now I’m preparing for an upcoming solo exhibition to be held this November in Taipei.
IF YOU COULD INVITE ANY CREATIVE OUT FOR COFFEE, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?
Michael Craig-Martin. From my perspective, his work is very accurate in the concept of presentation, wherefore I hope to have the opportunity to communicate with him, there will be sparks.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE CITY THAT YOU LIVE IN?
Order. Such as the damp smell after the rain, the odor of the summer heat under the asphalt as well as the scent mixed with the varieties of food. I’m really fond of all kinds of odors in Taipei, which fill me with inspiration and memories.
