Jiusi enjoys travelling, listening to life stories from strangers and being inspired by conversations with others.

Jiusi's practice comes from daydreaming and the joy of discovering in the details. She wants to express that life is confusing, nonsensical and therefore fun.

She has a strong love for old and low quality things, such as old magazine covers, film photography and animation from the last century. Therefore she kept experimenting with pixel art during the year.
