I am a Chinese American media artist and curator working in Richmond, Virginia. I cultivate instances of preciousness and arrangement, demonstrating them through the lens of false teleological and axiological significance. Elements are introduced to intervene in the natural and to call upon familiar language, suggesting disruption as systems intermingle and combine. Objects must then be prescribed value appropriate to their now unique history of disintegration/construction. The “end,” the intrinsic purpose of material, form, being, is questioned and exploited.
