My starting point is to be creative and innovate. Combining ideas of nature and science, I started my exploration of new ways to experience the world, interact with others, and make changes to our living environment. By applying knowledge from multi-disciplines such as psychology, geography, and astronomy, I want to design a future living style where we can live in harmony with nature. Through my designs I aim to provoke new thinking about “how do we live and our connection to the world”.

A Self-Communication Journey: OIA OC
OIA OC is a self-playing board game for young people to release stress and worry resulting from future uncertainty. The board game is designed base on Viktor Frankl’s psychological theory “self-detachment” which suggests a positive thinking method by detaching from themselves and the situation. The game is going to help players to discover a different angle to face current difficulties by jumping out of their fixed thinking patterns, through exploring suggestion cards with 4 topics: “interaction with people and environment”, “sense and observe the world”, “make a decision”, and “attitude towards future”.
