"Book from the Ground" and others for Xu Bing Studio
2004 - Ongoing
Graphic, Web, and Exhibition Design

My interest in data visualization began six years ago while working for the artist Xu Bing. My job was to produce with the artist a reflection upon the “Book from the Sky(Tian Shu)”, a work made some 20 years before. This new work, “Book from the Ground(Di Shu)” is an ever-evolving language made from signs, icons, and images found in public and forms into sentences, paragraphs, and finally stories.

I was moved by the intentions of this artwork because while the effort of producing this language continues indefinitely, it demonstrates a desire for communication beyond languages.

Other works I produced included print work for Sheng Huo, Yishu, Sotherby's, websites for the Artist and exhibitions including "Loneliness of Signs" Stuttgart, "Automatic Update" Moma, "Belief" Singapore Biennial, "Synthetic Times" China National Art Gallery as well as permanent installations.
