In a world of increasing Western influence, there is a sense of disconnection from one’s own culture. My body of work highlights my lack of understanding of my Chinese culture, combined with the global issue of climate change. The bleaching of coral can be said to be similar to the bleaching of Chinese culture. I have subverted Chinese written text, creating a new language with no translation where the audience may experience difficulties in comprehending what is written. Ink drawings of reefs depict the coral as masses of bodies left to decay out of humanity’s sight and mind.
