I am a British Chinese artist. Over the past ten years I have worked between Berlin and the Dominican Republic. I am currently part of the MFA program at the Zürich University of the Arts (ZHdK), having previously received a batchelor degree in graphic design from Central Saint Martins.Travel and exploration play a central role in my artistic practice. The starting point for much of my work is the discarded materials I collect, typically from domestic or manufactured sources. The found objects become vectors that I carry (literally) around the world and use as a tool for reflection and critical analysis, resulting in a body of work that explores the complex relationships between form, function, context and meaning.
