VIDEO ARTIST

A combination of live improvised performance and video editing. The performance video was all shot in one take, as part of an online Zoom concert, Metamorfosize. The entire video is created by me, except for the music.

both sides of the lens

Live improvisation and spontaneous composition, by recording with the selfie camera of my iPad. No video editing involved; the entire footage is done in one take.

general video editing

I also do general video editing for various purposes, especially as part of my community project, Metamorfosize. Below is an example of my video editing work for one of my choreographic works.

DESIGNER

 

fashion and costume

For University, I chose to major in Fashion Design and Textiles, with particular emphasis on Fashion Textiles. Below are some of the works I created during my university years (2011-2013). All garments were designed, constructed, embroidered, printed by me.

ambigrams

I enjoy designing ambigrams, which are essentially typographical design or artform that may be read not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, orientation. The ambigrams below are meant to be readable upright and upside down. Most of these were designed and given as presents.
