I mostly use plastic pipes as material and start to use wood and painting to create my works recently. Actually I have no limit on materials and usually choose suitable ones by subjects. These materials structure a format that presents a ‘process’, and its presentation always intends to lead audience to participate, which expresses my idea.

Therefore, my artworks do not express ideas directly since I see artworks as a medium that invites audience to connect with works via physical comprehension to generate a new experience of sensation.

With the convenience and efficiency brought by technology in modern life, people are gradually distant with real substances and lose authentic relationship with (actual) people also genuine experience with physical spatial association. The overall surrounding tells and regulates our connection with this world through the direction of a kind of guideline. All these situations will speedily develop to a certain extreme extend, and I do not mean to deny this mega trend or propose a recommendation yet merely wish to recall some of the forgotten feeling or memorable experience via participating my artworks.
