Art is research

Art is a research without boundaries, where the artist's curiosity and intuition lead to groundbreaking discoveries. I respect art and science. My science background guide me understand imagination, philosophy and our society.



A research about the development of visual image and object recognition.

Social Agnosia

Social agnosia is a term I use for discourse on how our brain has lost normal cognitive ability under our chaos world with all overwhelming, complex, and irrational information and political actions.

background story

They are a group of Chinese massage therapists with visual impairments. For most of them, massage therapy is the only job they can do. They love to smile and enjoy music, but they have never had the chance to engage with visual art.


The brain processes sensory information through transduction, converting stimuli into neural signals for interpretation. This involves seven senses: tactile, movement, smell, taste, visual, hearing, and balance. In the association cortex, sensory data is integrated with past experiences and memories to form a complete perceptual representation.

In this study, two groups of participants—one with normal vision and the other visually impaired—were blindfolded and tasked with hand-building a ceramic sculpture of an ear, nose, and mouth. We recorded and observed their sense of space, emotional expression, attention to detail, and interactions with others. Feedback from all participants indicated a profound impact, leading to the development of new ideas about themselves and each other. This study yielded valuable insights, prompting further exploration and nurturing of empathy.

Fifteen participants were tasked with drawing objects based solely on tactile input. These objects were sculptures from my installation, crafted to resemble old popular plastic commercial molds through casting.
