Taking a socially-conscious approach to my creative pursuits, I engage with art as both a creator and a curator. I am broadly interested in archive making, the development of digital culture and community engagement. In the studio, I draw inspiration from news, sociology research and personal experience, creating works that reflect on contemporary cultures. I experiment with a symbiosis of techniques, selecting media that best suit the context of audience interaction: images and moving images, texts, interactive objects and webpages. With an investigative lens and a touch of surrealism, these works create tension among familiarity and estrangement which raise awareness and provoke dialogue.



Curatorial & Community Initiatives


IMMEMORY: ON COVID-19

Initiated in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, IMMEMORY: on COVID-19 is a long-term digital curatorial project that aims to facilitate sharing of creative and thoughtful responses to the changing pandemic crisis from around the world. The current edition of the digital archive is a growing, curated collection of artworks representing over 40 countries. The website was officially nominated for the 25th Annual Webby Awards as the Best Cultural Blog/Website of 2021 (Webby’s Winners Gallery).

IMMEMORY: on COVID-19 是我策划的一个历史存档式的项目,自COVID-19疫情之初开始收集世界各地的人用“艺术的方式”提示出来的、对于疫情不同侧面的思考和记录。因为这场大流行中事态、观念的变化都十分迅速,因此想要提供一个通道,以日期和地区为线索,保留人们面对一个急剧变化的世界最直接、敏感的反应,以及疫情中创作环境的改变所导致的新创意形式。策展的时候希望发挥线上展的特点,让一些原本受制于物理展厅空间的图文互证关系得到阐释,于是比较注重收集提交者们所撰写的、相当于导览的文本。项目收到了来自近40个国家的各种作品300余件;作品具有互联网艺术、视频、绘画、雕塑、舞蹈、概念设计等多种形态。IMMEMORY项目网站获得国际数字艺术与科学协会颁发的2021年Webby Awards最佳文化类网站的官方提名(Webby’s Winners Gallery)。

纪录公社 | Jilu Commune

Jilu Commune is a free, communal resource website dedicated to sharing nonfiction filmmaking resources with creators at large, particularly for those who are based in China. We created this website to share carefully curated resources and tools to help documentary/nonfiction filmmakers grow professionally. The site also features a filmmaker directory for anyone who is expanding their network and looking for collaborators for their projects.

在移动互联网、快餐视频时代,对于那些坚持慢慢讲故事,希望通过长篇幅、大银幕来勾勒细腻深沉的情感、传达冷峻而耐人寻味的思考的职业纪录片制作人来讲,他们虽有一颗红心,但也着实面临拍摄时间长、技术门槛高、耗资巨大、破圈困难等多重挑战。于是,我们创办了这个名为纪录公社的公益空间,旨在共享纪录片的制作发行经验,让每一个纪录想法都找到他的伯乐,让每一个人纪录人的作品都有更广阔的展示平台。
