Exhibiting in M+ Hong Kong and volunteering at Hong Kong Art Centre public art events in her free time.
She is intrigued by interaction modalities between people and their social and contextual circumstances. Following her exploration of solo urban accommodation in ADS0 last year, she continues to find effective ways to subvert un-belonging and solitude in contemporary societies by connecting people through food. This year started by depicting Microsoft’s approach to encourage collaborations when designing the interior and exterior space on the Redmond Campus. The provision of free food in tech companies inspired her to become engaged with how communal cooking and eating can shape a more inclusive and connected urban environment.
