My current research focuses on transcultural identity in our era of global mobility, which reflects and relates directly to his experience of living between East Asia and Western Europe. My practice is driven an interest in multi-sensory and perceptive, primarily addressing audiovisual techniques and cinematographic aesthetics. My work often takes the form of performances and installations that use bodily gestures and movements including dance, gymnastics and sport.
