Never limit your imagination at Goldsmiths.

As I came to Goldsmiths as a graduate student after working for 3 years – I valued my year of study more than most recent undergraduates in China. My experience at Goldsmiths was exactly what I wanted. During my MA, I attended a variety of classes at the department of Media and Communication & Cultural Studies and experimented with a variety of media, including making short films, animations, fieldwork and, of course, writing my essays. Goldsmiths offers the freedom to experiment and find your own direction. The process of studying at Goldsmiths has given me a new understanding of what it means to think independently and to work independently on my own projects, which has been a huge boost to my work.

I am currently working on a sci-tech art exhibition at a listed company in Shanghai. At the same time, I am still experimenting with my own work. While open calling the best sci-tech artists in China, I also find better sources of ideas and working methods in the process of talking with them, which is also very helpful for my own creation. Therefore, I really enjoy the part where my work and my own creations complement each other.
