Academically, my research incorporates contemporary approaches to audio and visual art with aspects of traditional East Asian music and aesthetics. I am interested in combining original, sample-free electronic music with edited video and digital animation. Currently, I am exploring ways of creating a calming, tranquil sensory experience through audio and visual art.

Research Questions:

  • How have traditional East Asian arts developed in modern society?

  • How does technology influence the way artists view traditional arts and aesthetics?

  • In what ways are live instruments different from electronic versions?

  • Are electronic versions of traditional instruments "traditional" in any aspect, and why?

  • How can individuals perceive themselves within an environment in new ways?

  • Can a soothing sensory experience help neurodiverse individuals, and how?

  • How are moments of silence and spaces of emptiness valuable to art and society?
