My works are often inspired by animations and discuss the relation of the time in virtual world and in the real world.
The virtual world often slips into our lives through films, animations, games, and machines. Life becomes a travel in the time. We spend more and more time in the virtual world. In this increasingly virtualized world, our perception of time is disturbed, and developed into a new concept of time: the progress bar of loading game, the time loop and repetition, the time line of a person presented on social network all at the same time… Time, an important form of our existence, is mixing, restructuring, and creating new possibilities.
