“I’m passionate about enhancing human well-being. I care about empowerment, accessibility, inclusion, sustainability, and social welfare. These pillars guide my creative journey, serving as the compass for my artistic expression. My work is a reflection of the transformative power of design. It is a canvas upon which I explore the intricate interplay between technology, empathy, and human experience. I was inspired by my volunteer experiences at the No.1 Social Welfare House in Changsha, Hunan, where I assist seniors with degraded abilities like vision, hearing, and mobility to adapt to modern technologies. This experience intrigued my interest in creating socially responsible designs that are empathetic, inclusive, and accessible to people with different levels of abilities”.
