Artist Statement:

“My artworks live in the moment with you. I create luminous audio-visual experiences using real-time 3D animation to make lights to dance in harmony. My subject matter is to visualize the invisible nature by movement, time, relationship, patterns, perspective and full spectrum of colors. Just like how everything is constantly changing in nature, so are my artworks. The whole process becomes multi-dimensional feedback of my perception of the world, my imagination, my artworks and yours.”
