Found myself in the Simon Fraser University’s student hand book for Fall 2018. Thank you Dean Lastoria for sending them to me as a gift. It’s a really nice print! 飲水思源 sending appreciation to the source that contributed to where I am today–the creative environment of SFU, the radical professors. And the life changing event when Dr. Henry Daniel brought Troika Ranch to work with us, I got to work with the creator of Isadora, which lead to this photo of me working in Lake Studio Berlin where I did my one-on-one mentorship/research funded by BC Arts Council, and developed into a new project “W(e)aves” that I’m currently working on with the support from Canada Council for the Arts.
It’s funny because in my early school years, I barely survived, I was on academic probation for a while and was almost kicked out of school. I found what I love and what spoke to me the most. I tried challenging the school’s curriculum and was embraced. I hoped that one day this school would be proud of me and my work. And, here I am!
One love to the photographers Ja Schabi & Sheng Ho. Photographed in Lake Studios Berlin & Vancouver Art Gallery of a co-creation work-in-progress “Introducing Asia” with Tarun Nayar & Scheherazaad Cooper.
I also have to thank my teachers, Laura Marks Arne Eigenfeldt Martin Gotfrit Pia Massie Rob Groeneboer Colin Browne and many others, who spotted a little shimmering light and didn’t give up on me. Thank you again and again.
A cute little reminisce of my school days
