an observer/ an explorer/ a storyteller/ a visual designer
Tianning focuses on a personal exploration of the links between design and society, incorporating her own experiences and perspectives. Much of her work is based on the observation and comprehension of reality, but interpreted through an alternative perspective.
Different visual languages and media are the signatures of her work. She uses completely different fields and perspectives to interpret the themes, making them seem 'impossible', and tries to disrupt conventional thinking with this connection of unrelated things, to expand people's perceptions, creating visual flux and empathy.
She is also a storyteller, narrative plays an important role in her projects. Her recent research has focused on how to create narratives in her work that are independently navigated by the viewer. And generating new definitions of the work through the audience's understanding.
