Mechanical Hand

A hand with moving parts to be worn as an extension on the arm, puppeteered by the wearer. (Wood, wire, elastic, screws)

The Metal Lunch Club

This project explores the relationship between my white British and Hong Kong Chinese identities. The aesthetics of the space and the dim sum cart reflect how I connect to Chinese culture, primarily through eating and cooking, whereas the track and animation take inspiration from my upbringing in Manchester, with a love of UK jungle and drum and bass.

Restaurant Beat

The music playing out of the dim sum trolley, a drum and bass track made in collaboration with my good friend Spencer Rule, created out of samples from the kitchen, combined with digital sounds. The track features: peeling vegetables, sharpening a knife, biting and crunching, tapping a metal bowl of water, the sizzling of oil in a pan, drumming on pots, pans, and countertops using utensils, and various unidentifiable clashes and clanging.

Salmon Head

Framed silk print of a salmon head sculpture.
