I think there must be some oriental roots in my subconsciousness as I grew up here. However, I don’t like to mirror or materialize them in clichéd eastern symbols in my works. I hope my works can combine the implicative and realistic aspects into one. For example, the “BC” series was inspired by the ancient bronzes of China, so I tried to use glass and copper at the same time in my work. Another, the “Tune” series, was prompted by my enamoring of the crisp sound of glass.
