Currently under summer construction. You're welcome to look while it slowly builds up over time. Thanks for your patience.

An artist from Calgary, Canada.

My practice utilizes spaces and experiences that are familiar and then alter them into something a bit foreign through re-interpreting and re-creating. My projects are developed to include and emphasize visitor interactions as integral components to the themes of the work. These themes touch upon alienation, identity, belonging and the position of an individual within a community – particularly in the perspective of a 2nd generation Chinese Canadian. I specialize in digital platforms, functional installations and body-based exchanges and objects.

Recent shows include EMMEDIA’s Particle + Wave Festival, M:ST 9, WRECK CITY, IKG LIVE 2, and The New Gallery. An upcoming solo exhibition in April in Stride Gallery.
