Every day we struggle with duality like male and female, right and wrong, intense and mild. To choose not to choose is a choice. We can be a spirit in between, not excess or deficiency but both, and without boundaries. The experience of opposites allows for the expression of wholeness. Things will develop in the opposite when they become extreme. The goal of my work is to maintain balance and harmony in order to direct the mind to a state of constant equilibrium. I produce wearable sculptures as a way to represent the unisex characteristic on any gender, and the epitome of interdependence universe.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. — Gibran
“Undefined” questions about the behavior of defining. It is neutral, and not simply black or white. People easily define things in life, but these judgments are often deviated by personal subjectivity and stereotypes. It’s hard to represent the completeness of things objectively.
The palms are covered with transparent hashtags. They are the metaphor of invisible definitions from people themselves. The back of the hands carries a transparent acrylic rod. It's the burden of judgments that people suffer from others.
The collar from mouth extends into a transparent frame like people use their own subjective words to shape and confine the appearance of others.
Mountain is a memento of where I come from, Taiwan, a small island with many mountains. The profile is inspired by the cross-section of earth. Mountains extrude form the surface of sphere. A wrist goes through the circle where the original sphere is. In addition, the surface is created more texture and contrast with patina. I made this piece to recall my childhood memories in Taiwan. Wear it and remind me where I belong.

Use the flow of lines and the division of spaces to represent the rhythm of natural life on the surface of a vase and bowl.

Cosmos is a sculpture in a magnifier shape. The blowing glass cone represents light refracting through lens. The geometric objects inside are symbols of everything in the universe. The concept is from a poem by William Blake, “To see a World in a Grain of Sand and a Heaven in a Wild Flower.” We use magnifier to observe the truth from every single detail of our lives.
