Xiaochu Dai (Daisy) is an interdisciplinary and multi-media art practitioner. With an architectural background, she is good at telling stories with space and conveying the atmosphere her works want to express. She uses poetic methods to awaken people's innermost emotions through spatial narration and emotional resonance.
Her practical themes include but are not limited to the emotional connection between humans and nature, urban memory, and ecological landscape. As a multi-media creative practitioner, photography and digital film are her areas of expertise. Though her work she explores new media to interpret different themes, and likes to use “cold” media (new technology) to interpret “hot” themes (emotions, memories), while trying to find a new balance between the two.
In the re-encounter project, she received lots of help from friends from different countries, which got her thinking about what is real communication? Do people of different nationalities, different countries, interpret information in the same way? And how do we cross borders and overcome language barriers to get a really powerful message across?
