In the chilly winter of 2020, I graduated from the University of Minnesota with my dual Bachelor's degrees in Graphic Design BFA and Economics BA. At the age of 26, I pursued further studies at RCA, where I started to shift my understanding of graphic design. I define myself as a 'graphic designer', although my practice involves different forms of expression, including experimental publications, moving images, performance and installation. 'Graphic design' is an inclusive term that encompasses the process of interaction between visual graphics and me. Any material or medium can be a channel for graphics.
I have won many awards in the last two years:
- The Most-Familiar-Face-At-School Award by my classmates;
- The Hardest-Working Award by my friend;
- The Not-Being-Home-For-4-Years Award by my parents;
- The Most-Dependable Award by my partner;
- The Anxiety-Of-Future Award by myself.
All so-called 'awards' may not mean anything. What others can feel from my practice, what I can learn from my practice, that's all that matters.
