I AM AN ARTIST AND FILMMAKER BASED IN BEIJING SINCE 2008. A HONG KONG NATIVE, I HAVE LIVED IN THE U.S. FOR 12 YEARS AND THE LAST 8 IN BEIJING. I TAKE STRONG INTERESTS IN SOCIAL ISSUES, CURRENT AFFAIRS AND CULTURAL STUDIES WHICH REFLECT IN MANY OF THE PROJECTS I HAVE TAKEN PART.

MY WORK INCLUDE VIDEO INSTALLATIONS, DOCUMENTARIES, SHORT FILMS AND FILM PHOTOGRAPHY.

DURING COLLEGE AND EARLY YEARS OF MY CAREER, I HAVE MADE A NUMBER OF EXPEDITIONS, INCLUDING TWO EIGHT-MONTH LONG JOURNEYS THAT TOOK ME TO FOUR CONTINENTS AND OVER TEN COUNTRIES, SUCH AS CAMBODIA, SOUTH AFRICA, LESOTHO, TURKEY, RURAL CHINA, KYRGYZSTAN AND SOUTHERN U.S.A, ETC., WHERE I COLLECTED VISUAL MATERIALS AND RECORDED STORIES FROM THE PEOPLE I MET.

MY INSTALLATION WORK HAS BEEN EXHIBITED INTERNATIONALLY INCLUDING 2014 VENICE ARCHITECTURAL BIENNALE AND 2015 MILANO EXPO, 2014 SMART CITY AND 2013 BEIJING DESIGN WEEK.

MY DIRECTORIAL DEBUT IS A NARRATIVE SHORT FILM CALLED “NEXT MINUTE”. I WROTE THE STORY WHICH PORTRAYS THE UNIVERSAL EXPERIENCE OF THE EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF MUSIC. ORIGINAL SCORE OF BLUES, SKA AND CHINESE R&B WERE WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY CHINESE AND U.S. MUSICIANS.

IN 2015, I SET UP A NON-PROFIT CREATIVE SPACE ‘OCTORAY STUDIO’, A 200 SQM SPACE LOCATED IN CAOCHANGDI. I HOPE THAT BY PROVIDING FREE SPACE FOR MY PEERS, I CAN HELP FOSTER NOT ONLY ARTISTIC GROWTH BUT ALSO COMMUNITY BUILDING BY HOSTING SEMINARS AND OTHER COMMUNITY EVENTS.
