Recent Projects


laser dye

One of my main focus now is the laser dye project, which is an exploration of laser exposured alternative photography on nature fibres. I develop large cyanotype prints on fabric canvas.


e-textile, wearables

My other main focus is conductive material application in textiles, I explore the application of conductive fabric for making wearables, sensors, e-textiles

laser installation

I have been developing laser installation with DIY laser machine controlled with max/msp and standalone sound card since 2011.


Early stage projects
installation, sound devices

Tribe Against Machine

Tribe Against Machine is an attempt to link art, hacker culture, material science, and ancient culture. It seeks inspiration for material design in ancient practices. Although this project was originated from the collaboration between technology and tribal culture, we prefer "tribes" "And "machine" mean a broader interpretation of "unhomogenized group" and "system"! The project includes organizing workshops, such as nomadic "camps" in cooperation with international volunteers from all over the world, or material experiment workshops in cooperation with traditional craft communities, using cultural and artistic forms to find translations in different cultural and temporal dimensions. It is wonderful to create a community that “connects the past and the future”; for example, the knowledge of the botany of the Taiwanese tribes has brought inspiration for the design of biological textiles, and the application of conductive fibers has inspired traditional craftsmen. The construction of greenhouses in the developing regions has proposed the possibility of technological art participating in social design projects and so on.



Researches


DSSC (dye sensitized solar cell)

I like to work with art and science, particularly to work with light, or photosensitive materials. I have been researching this interesting photocatalytic material TiO2, in a self-taught way since 2018, this is also the catalysis to encourage my study for nano materials, since TiO2 takes the main function in DSSC. 

I worked with a Tibetan community in Qinghai, China since 2018, to develop a greenhouse prototype that can resist -20 ~ -30 celcius in winter in order to provide year run vegetable for an orphanage school. My recent work The Mind of A Greenhouse introduces this research trips. The window of this installation is made with DSSC, and is dyed with the local fruits.

Another project was invited by Tincuta Heinzel in July 2021,under the frame of her residency project DESIGNANO - The Aesthetics of Imperceptibility, this project is support by IMERA Arts & Sciences Fellowship, Marseille, France. I am developing a review paper to contribute my work involve with DSSC technology.


Incas Dark Canstellation x ALMA

This is a collaboration with Maria Jose Rios, the project founder of l_c(page 23), which is funded by ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array). I am commissioned to explore the connection between the Incas constellation knowledges and the contemprary astronomy datas and to develop a data visualization program to embody this relation.Here is the current note of the research process.


Machine learning

The Self-portrait Of Things was an experiment about how machine learning can participate with painters behaviors. Its a collaboration with a fine art painter Lee Ming Chong, several ML tools were developed.

活動


Having Friends in the Future-未來的朋友-360展覽在臺灣工藝研究發展中心開幕

- 展覽專輯發行「如果時間是穿戴且折疊的」展覽專輯《時間是穿戴和折疊的》現正發售

-激光染料項目是 Reshape 19Altaroma Digital Fabrication 2020 的獲勝者


近期計劃


雷射染

我現在的主要計劃之一是雷射染計劃,這是一項對天然纖維上用雷射曝光替代攝影的探索,並在織物上開發大型氰版顯影。


電子織品、可穿戴設備

我的另一個主要關注點是導電材料在紡織品中的應用,我探索了導電織物在製造可穿戴設備、傳感器、電子織品方面的應用

雷射裝置

自 2011 年以來,我一直在使用由 max/msp 和獨立聲卡控制的 DIY 激光機開發雷射裝置

早期作品

裝置聲響裝置

部落對抗機器

部落對抗機器(Tribe Against Machine)是一個連結藝術、黑客文化、材料科學和古老文化的嘗試,在古老作法中尋找材料設計的靈感,雖起源於科技和部落文化合作的探索工作營,但我們更偏好「部落」和「機器」意旨更廣意的「未被同質化的團體」和「系統」的解釋!計劃形式包括組織工作坊,如遊牧式的和各地國際義工合作的「營」、或和傳統工藝社群合作的材料實驗工作坊,利用文化和藝術形式在不同的文化和時間維度中尋找轉譯的美妙,從而創造能「連繫過去和未來」的社群;例如台灣部落的植物學知識為生物紡織品設計帶來了靈感,導電縫線的應用激發了傳統工藝者,開發中地區的溫室建設提出了科技藝術在社會設計項目裡參與的可能性等。


研究


DSSC(染料敏化太陽能電池)

我喜歡連結藝術和科學,特別是對光或感光材料有興趣。自 2018 年以來,以自學的方式研究二氧化鈦這個有趣的光催化材料,這也是鼓勵我研究納米材料的催化劑,因為二氧化鈦在染敏太陽能電池中(DSSC)中發揮了關鍵作用。自 2018 年以來,我與中國青海的一個藏族社區合作,試圖開發了一個可以在冬季抵抗-20到-30攝氏度的溫室原型,以便為孤兒學校提供常年蔬菜。我最近的裝置作品溫室之心,那次西藏的研究之旅。這個裝置的窗戶是用DIY染敏太陽能技術DSSC製作,並使用當地的水果染色。

此外,2021年7月,另一項計劃由Tincuta Heinzel邀請我參與她的駐村計劃DESIGNANO - The Aesthetics of Imperceptibility 。該計劃得到了法國馬賽IMERA藝術與科學獎學金的支持。我正在撰寫一篇評論文章,以貢獻我與染敏太陽能電池DSSC技術相關的工作。

Incas Dark Canstellation x ALMA

這是與l_c(第23頁)的項目創始人Maria Jose Rios的合作,該項目由ALMA(阿塔卡馬大型毫米/亞毫米陣列)資助。我受委託探索印加文化中的暗星座知識和當代天文學數據之間的聯繫,並開發一個資料視覺化程序來體現這種關係。這裡是研究過程的最新記錄


機器學習 The Self-portrait Of Things

意識染是一項關於機器學習如何參與畫家行為的實驗。這項計劃是和純藝術畫家李民中的合作,在實驗過程中我設計了數種實驗裝置以探索基本的機械學習原理。
