Artist Statement: 
I create installations that look like glitches in reality. Through manipulating sound, light, scale, and optics, I affect the viewer’s perception of time and space and generate an illusory experience of physical space. My immersive installations ask viewers to crawl, kneel, peer, and lay within, their actions implicating them in the narratives these structures contain. Stemming from conversations with my Taiwanese parents about their journey to the United States, I examine myths within American culture such as the frontier and the rugged explorer. The forms of my installations resemble industrially produced objects and borrow their ability to materialize our fantasies.
