About me

My current work 'INCUBATOR 610' is developed based on my previous work 'RUBIK'S CUBE', it is mainly inspired by the idea of simulated reality and an institutional building type called 'panopticon', designed by the English philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham in the 18 century, which is to surveillance and control human behaviour. Developed from those ideas with feather research, the video installation 'INCUBATOR 610' is hugely inspired by the thought experiment ‘Brain in a vat’ by René Descartes, also the human conception of reality, consciousness and meaning, addressing the uncertainty of my authenticity in this simulated world through Fatalism. I am interested around different Philosophy concepts in reality, consciousness and meaning, as a way to understand myself, which eventually become the inspiration of my work, also a bridge to deliver my view of virtual beings and self-consciousness as a ‘human being’. With the experience working with 3D software, I am able to share my thoughts by creating virtual scenes and avatars in a digital form to fit with my ideas.
