Time Is Up! (2012)

Clock, Metal

36x36x4.5

Turn-over your clock.

Every hour has sixty minutes,

every minute is passing.

Every day has twenty more hours,

every hour is counting down.

Every month includes around thirty days,

every day is counting down.

One year, twelve months,

every month is counting down.

Did you use your time wisely?

When we get older, we feel the time pass faster. Every hour is like counting down. Have you ever felt that before? The passing time is the unchangeable truth, but we never us...

社會認同的符號The Marks of Social Identity(2013)
Pear wood, Glass, Aluminium
8x25x12.5






What if our social identity is not represented by objects we owe, but by markings on our skin? Tattoo (Tatau) was first used by aboriginal people as marks of pride. Each tattoo symbolises a different achievement and social recognition in the tribe. If this ritual has carried on to our society, how would we hold this ritual, what would it look like and how will it alter our perception of each other? Whic...

蘊Eternal life(2013)

925 sliver, resin

0.8x6x5.5


My initial inspiration came from the growth pattern of moss – moss plants always grow together, always as a group, and in a humid environment. They interact with each other and are closely linked. Nature is fantastic and full of unique forms, which have their own patterns, structures and qualities.Take the outline of moss as the patterns, the layers of oxidized-silver as the mosses plants which grow together, and the matted surface such as the ...

Deer Hanger (2013)
wood, ceramics
16x40x4


The  Coat Hanger is evolved from a jumping deer, with the rear legs in its real shape and front legs in the traditional shape of a coat hanger. It symbolizes the evolution of society from being traditional to modern and industrialized in Taiwan. It also reminds us not to forget the past but rather, cherish the resources we have on the earth and love it so that we could keep the environment beautiful and develop it in a sustainable way.
