artist statement
All these works focus on expressing my understanding and feeling of nature formation. Nature forms various patterns and status. Some are orderly in space but disorderly in time; others orderly in time but disorderly in space. Some patterns exhibit self-similarity or stable structures. Others give rise to random states or oscillating ones. The dynamics seems basic, changing in relative space and time, yet still difficult to predict and comprehend.

Facing with microscopic particles to everyday complexity, I sometimes have been driven through a feeling of mystery, dramatics and unpredictability about the formation of nature. Hopefully computer graphics may be applied to my work as a way into an unlimited thinking space.
