Abstract

I grew up in an interesting yet contradictory environment. As both of my parents were busy with their jobs, I was raised by my grandparents and I believe that’s where the contradiction aspect of my personality came. My grandfather was a professor of physics in a university and my grandmother was a professor of violin. Unconsciously, I was influenced by them and developed a keen interest in cross-disciplinary and cross-media subjects. The two subjects of music and physics represented art and science, emotion and reason, abstraction and concreteness, and invisible and visible to me.

My work is primarily engaged with the combination of science and art. I draw inspiration from art and combine it with scientific foundation. My research includes quantum physics, quantum entanglement and emotive therapy. The focus of my research is not to reveal difficult or avant-garde scientific technologies today, but to achieve creativity—taking artistically designed work as a communication channel with the public to inspire people with the possibility for future communication development. The work I designed can be referred to as the “Human Instrumentality Project”1, which I think is very challenging.

I’m also attracted to the relation between science and the tales of science. I’ve heard about many interesting tales of science, some of which originated from the observation and deduction of the ancient people towards the universe, the heaven and the earth. Many surprising inspirations can be acquired if you study in this direction.
