This audience-participatory experimental work will break down the boundaries between reading and performance, creating a process of 'encryption' and 'decryption'. Through this process, it attempts to establish a potential connection between the audience that transcends the verbal, exploring the delicate relationship between authority and liberty, confinement and self-emancipation.

Happiness and sorrow coexist. This project utilizes metaphor-laden installation and interactive segments to guide participants through the complex emotions inherent in romantic relationships. How can I ensure that I will not renege on my vow? When receiving a declaration of love from my partner, am I hearing romantic phrases, the transient nature of words, the unpredictability of the future, or my partner's true sincerity?

“Veiled Texture of Shame” is an artistic investigation into the subtleties of interior human emotions. In this multi-media performance, each piece of bark, every thread, the surrounding net, video even the performer, would show the subtlety and complexity of internal emotions. From the bark’s fractures to the stitches’ mending, each step examines the shame that may arise when showcasing inner vulnerabilities and how this feeling manifests in the texture.

"The Estranged Gaze of Compassion” The 2023-24 academic year at the Architectural Association Interprofessional Studio (AAIS) marks the culmination of the studio's “identity” series, focusing on the theme of "compassion." This year's overarching objective explores the methodology of "intellectual empathy." It researches and applies the concept of “alienating theatre,” drawing inspiration from the approach of Berthold Brecht.

Warning. You might see men, women and such like creatures; of which we make anatomy. Symbols are these. Signs. We say no more. They are social adults being social adults. People, even wicked people are more naive and whole hearted than one generally assumes. We’re transgressive on purpose. … It is a bit weird but it works.

"Fragments" are as free as the gentle breeze. They arise from within you, inviting boundless creativity, though this may carry you away from their essence.They also spring from the vast expanse of the universe, and you can willingly seek their rightful place, perhaps drawing near to their essence. Yet, both you and the fragments dance in the realm of freedom. You have the liberty to choose how to embrace them, but you can never confine their ethereal spirit.

London WC1B 3ES

The contradiction between personal identity construction and social identity has always existed, but we don't have to be in a hurry to make a choice; rather, we have to accept this contradiction, maintain a state of questioning and exploring the self, and re-engage in a process of reflection. In order to encourage "avoiding fixed identities and keeping options open", I want to provide a space for reflection for myself and those who resonate with me, where identities are no longer "pilgrims" but "wanderers", "tourists" or "players" and where we are always in the process.

This performance intricately weaves together elements of acting, lighting, music, and projection to craft a multifaceted tableau. Viewers are invited to assume a third-person vantage point, observing the myriad "contradictions" that manifest both externally in the world and internally within the self, as I navigate through the four stages of my own addiction. Employing myself as a conduit, I aim to lead the audience on a journey to uncover the profound effects of societal influences on individuals grappling with addiction.
