Always Open! Sept. 2020, Taiwan
This work is a site-specific installation that reveals the extreme relationship between urban beings and convenience stores. Whenever visiting a foreign place, we are prone to visit all convenience stores in our sights. The latent qualities of urban beings are then at once revealed: we're phototactic insects; we're colonists on patrol.

Scanning Identity
July 2020, Taiwan
Attempting to combine technology with humanity, we scanned our palms to get the prints, then simplified the print to make a unique logo through programming. This visual identity system stands for the agency’s vision. On the scales of individuals, teams, companies, societies, and environments, everybody can have their own exclusive symbol; it represents the diverse voices in our society.
