The Museum of Broken Relationships Posters, 2020

The Museum of Broken Relationships Posters, 2020
A series of posters for the Museum of Broken Relationships. The ordinary objects will become very unordinary once people give them a meaning. Love is a timeless topic, in this museum, you may be able to find out other people’s “broken” experience, and the stories of why they chose to display those specific objects to represent the broken relationships. People can put all these broken relationships in there and have other people watch them. Key rings, books, coffins, toys, axes, iron, a piece of mirror and so on. People have different forms and stories of heartbreak in a relationship, which makes this museum fascinating.

The New Fear Magazine,2021

The 37th issue of New Fear Magazine is about "Megaophobia" with features images and interviews from people around the world who take pictures of huge objects. I have always had inexplicable fear of huge objects, which are so unequal in scale that I have to bend my neck to look up at them. They are always in form of statues and churches. It always take decades or even centuries to build a church, and they are successfully obtain the attention of people passing by. This kind of huge thing, it often appears in "inappropriate" occasion, they deliberately appear in the place where the crowd gathers, and deliberately far larger than the size of the building according to the law of human rule.

The Book of Sun, 2021

A book about the sunlight and the artificial sunlight. The first part of this book shows people taking direct photographs of the natural sun. Printing the sun lights is a ridiculous thing to do, however here I find the limitation of the paper to print the light - it has to be left blank. Take advantage of this and we created some artificial suns in another part of the book, which is the worst imitation of the sun.
