Move on, nothing to see (Shy-Bots) (2015-2021)

Move on, nothing to see (Shy-Bots) (2015-2021)

Two lines of “shy” security cameras greet the public as they walk a red carpet. These motorized cameras ressemble security cameras or avid reporters looking for a good shot; however, the moment the camera recognizes a face, it hastily looks away, ashamed of its intrusive attitude and avoiding eye contact.

Interactive Immersive Projection

Interactive Immersive Projection

“Spiritual World” is an interactive immersive projection trying to build an inner world to show the self-reflection process of participants visually and show the relationship between participants. Experiencing the “Spiritual World” is like entering other people’s inner world or let other people get into your inner world. The interaction between participants will be visually displayed… Continue reading Interactive Immersive Projection

What is it like to be a (virtual) bat?

What is it like to be a (virtual) bat?

The research based art work ‘What is it like to be a virtual bat?’ is the second in a series of multispecies, sensory ethnographies around the ecosystems of Lantau Island, Hong Kong, and is an attempt to acknowledge the limitations of human sensory capacities and how technology can be used to ‘mediate’ these constraints and embody more-than-human experiences.
Bubalus Bubalis 16hz-44,000hz

Bubalus Bubalis 16hz-44,000hz

The research based artwork Bubalus bubalis /16HZ-40,000HZ is the first of a series of works which adopts a ‘creaturely perspective’ that at once elevate more sensual, elemental and cosmopolitical understandings of multispecies perspectives, while documenting a mode of human animal-nonhuman animal sociality in this unique post-domestic context of Hong Kong.

Classifying Cycling Hazards in Egocentric Data

2021. To facilitate a better understanding of what causes hazardous conditions to cyclists we created a dataset of classified hazardous cycling conditions.
Time Reversal – Hole Burning

Time Reversal – Hole Burning

We present a counterintuitive method to create a time-reversed wave by applying a time-controlled dissipation pulse. Moreover, by successive application of this principle, we can destroy a monochromatic component of a broad band wave to make an “in situ” spectral hole burning We demonstrate this technique numerically and an experimental proof is made with a… Continue reading Time Reversal – Hole Burning
The Leodrone: aerodynamics of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Aerial Screw

The Leodrone: aerodynamics of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Aerial Screw

2019. Incredible as it may be, and despite the widespread recognition of Leonardo Da Vinci as the “father” of aerodynamics, nobody seems to have studied the aerodynamic efficiency of one of his more iconic designs: the aerial screw. I modelled the screw, and simulated Leonardo Da Vinci contraption using modern computational fluid dynamics (CFD, SimScale).

The Analogue Notebook: a Forgotten Exercise?

The Analogue Notebook: a Forgotten Exercise?

2019. We are at a loss when words or pictures refuse to reveal their immediate purpose. Yet despite its graphical profusion, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Codex is very lucid in this respect: every page offers immediate enjoyment, regardless of a professional grasp of the subject matter.
