Bio

I work and think about light and the experience of seeing – in exploring the flowing life and one’s relation with outside systems. From celluloid film, analogue video signal to digital video processing, screen-based and optical projections, installed and performed, on location and via the internet, I question the existing methods of shadow-image production by experimenting alternative ways to “un-expose.”

It has been important for me to examine both the curiosity for the camera obscura “shadow-image”(影+像) and the colonized history of image-capturing while looking as an “outsider.” I resist by proposing to un-expose, to un-do the gaze: an alternative system of the light and shadow, images of memories and haunting dreams. Blurred, glitched and overlapped images show a state of in between – not because of representational identity, but between me and the medium, between the medium and the world. Downwards and cross-dual projections are to reflect and re-imagine ephemeral and transiting memories. My practice and research turned into the materiality while asking questions about spectatorship and participation.

Now, how could we see and experience the world differently when images are processed live with today’s digital systems and the new telecommunication methods? It is to seek for the tenderness that withholds freedom and forgiveness.
