In Search of Feminism and Identity in Asia 2024

︎ In Search of Feminism and Identity in Asia is a non-judgmental space dedicated to exploring the nuances of feminism and women’s identity within Asian Gen-Z cultures. It features conversations with women from Asia about themes of independence and culture. Each site offers a discussion — an insight into various views on how these women understand, perceive, and respond to feminism and gender inequality. This project aims to detaboo the term “feminism” in Asian culture and attempts to incorporate the physical space representing intimacy into a digital format, empower Asian to discuss, share, listen and learn about feminism in trusted relationships.

BU CDS Illumination Hub  2024

Proposal to transform the second floor of Boston University’s Data Science building into a creativity hub that enhances inclusivity and interdisciplinary collaboration.

The installation has been divided into two segments. The first segment is the digital signal, which contributes to the branding effort of the floor. The second segment is the lighting wall, designed to be powered by open-source code and driven by a continually evolving set of community-contributed light shows.
