What three things are essential to your practice?

What is the most inspiring place or exhibition you’ve been to in London?
There are so many high-quality exhibitions in London. As an art lover, I love to go and see art pieces. Tacita Dean at the Royal Academy of Art, Wolfgang Tillmans at the Tate Modern, Sarah Sze at Victoria Miro gallery, Do Ho Suh also at Victoria Miro gallery, U fan Lee at the Serpentine Gallery, Lan Cheng at the Serpentine Gallery and Alva Noto at the Barbican were the exhibitions in my mind.
What’s the first thing you do in the studio?
Every work has a different process but normally, I research the ideas from books and the web first.
How does it feel to have your work displayed in not just a shop?
I’m glad that I could display my work in not just a shop with other creative artists and designers from UAL. In the beautiful shop, I could not only exhibit work but I also get an opportunity to sell work. Also, I have a platform to talk about myself and my work, so it’s good chance to take part.
What sort of a person do you imagine would relate to your work?
I not sure about that yet. But I love the artists, Nam June Paik, John Cage and Bruce Nauman.
