HONG KONG'S LAST WORDS

Interactive Installation // December 2019 - January 2020

The panels are quotes taken from a New York Times video where protestors said their final goodbyes to family, friends, and lovers. This is an interactive installation that invites viewers from all backgrounds to become cognizant of what is happening in Hong Kong and to cherish the relationships we have with one another. There is a yellow umbrella that people can take up and see what it is like to be a part of the protests.

 

Step into someone else’s shoes and empathize.

THE HISTORY OF CHINESE AMERICANS

Interactive Piece - Processing, p5.Js  // December 2020 - January 2021

How do we move forward, if we do not know our past? The central theme of this piece is that we stand on the shoulders of those who come before us. In order to be better creatives, citizens, students, we need to learn where we have come from.

Our education is centered on the erasure of Asian Americans and the prioritization of Eurocentric history. This is the first piece in this interactive installation that will explore our various histories. We must not forget where we have come from, as all that progress can be lost in an instant.

We stand on their shoulders.

 

This interactive book explores the history of Chinese Americans through illustration and typography. This piece was created initially on Processing and made web-friendly through p5.js.

YOU ARE SO LOVED

Fashion Design & Photography // December 2019

I designed a two-piece set with the top made out of tulle with hand sewn feathers & a wrap skirt made out of knit fabric.

This piece is titled after a charm I have on my bracelet that I got in my freshman year of high school, when I felt alone and needed a reminder that people love and care for me. Coincidentally, in my first year of college, I felt the same way. This piece serves as a reminder of love, reconciliation, and resilience. You are loved + you are strong.
