The photographs were made using a Pixelstick — the text is stored on a memory card attached to a 6-foot rod of 200 LEDs. The camera takes a long exposure photo as I walk by with the Pixelstick, and the letters appear to float in midair.

As an undergraduate I was hit by a car and suffered a long period of anterograde amnesia. I couldn't form new memories and spent my day trying to understand where I was, how I got there, and where I was going. My goal with this editing strategy is to replicate that experience.

This music video follows the course of the day, from night, to day and again to night. The process of the song's recording is a lot like the idea of the song itself. Imperfection, being unsure of oneself, random inspiration, the extremes of a nice acoustic layered with slightly out of tune electric, too much going on from too many different players and sounds, all swept up and lost in a river subtly screaming impermanence.

This work was created with the intent to showcase my technical proficiency in Illustrator. I created this piece with the fewest amount of control points and bezier handles possible. My intent was to take a mundane object and represent it graphically, it is something that is familiar to everyone and something that everyone can relate to and take comfort in.

The Face Shadow collage shows a man in the center, staring right into the audience. The contrast color of red and green used in order to create the maximum of the conflict to people and make the man stand out, creating a mysterious sensation.
The Pointing Fingers collage points to the center and the sides are filled with prison-ish sensations. The "Live Free" also yearns for the freedom and give a feeling of the urge to run away from the place.

This artwork is a street view of Shanghai Band in 1935, China. In my work I combined a car ad on the top of the bus in order to reflect consumerism at that period of time. There's also a modern lady wearing a nice dress walking across the street, which is a deep contrast with the busy human labor who earn little money by pulling rickshaws.

The Griddle is a place for college students and families to come together to de-stress and reconnect over breakfast food. The menu emphasizes specialty waffles with fun combinations for all. Customers experience an enjoyable, relaxing atmosphere. The Griddle also has “syrup on tap” letting customers experience syrup infused with unusual, exotic flavors. All renderings were produced through Revit where I 3D modeled some furniture with custom modeling in pieces like both bars, booths, banquette seating, and light fixtures. I chose materials that were warm and light-hearted, with accents of gold and copper to add spontaneity throughout the space. I took the renderings and enhanced them with Photoshop and put the boards together using InDesign.; AS: We needed to come up with a concept for a restaurant located on State Street. I decided on a specialty waffle bar since that is a family friendly environment that people of all ages could enjoy, and there isn't one currently on State Street. I went further and put my own twist on the restaurant creating a syrup bar with "syrup on tap"--syrups infused with unusual, exotic flavors, to further the customer experience. I wanted this place to be somewhere people could come relax and de-stress while enjoying each other's company over breakfast food.

I chose traditional Chinese architecture to represent my life in the past 22 years.  I'm a Chinese girl and studied in America since freshman year. Even though I have stayed in the US for almost 4 years,  my thinking, my behavior, and my lifestyle still work in a Chinese way. So, I wanted to find something that can highly represent China.  I chose Chinese architecture which has huge differences with other countries and can have a meaning of home as well.

Graphic Essay

See this Project!

My creation is meant to educate the viewer through factual data and information, with the aid of photographs and visuals. The visuals are meant to further enhance the learning process, forming visual connections to the coinciding text.
My graphic essay, focused on the topic of how language influences thought, behavior, and brain perception, was intended for a broad audience. My goal was that anyone interested in this topic would be able to look at the graphic essay, and learn something new. Because of the large amount of information I gathered to back up the research, I decided to make the ratio of text to visuals larger than 50/50. I wanted the visuals to back up the information I presented in the text, but not overshadow. Since my essay contained historical information, my goal was to fill the graphic essay with old, historical photographs related to the text, but manipulate it with a contemporary twist. The subject of my essay was quite factual and ‘heavy’ to understand in parts, so in order to keep it simple, I chose a black background with white text in hope that the reader would focus on the text, and not on the layout of the graphic essay. My graphic essay would not have been possible without the historical photographs I was fortunate enough to find online. The content of the essay is partly historically based around Native American tribes, and the old photographs added to the overall visual understanding. The goal of my graphic essay was to make it enjoyable to read. I find the topic interesting on its own, but now with the added graphics that I am actually able to see, and not only read, it has developed into something much more enjoyable.

When brainstorming themes and ideas for my project, I continually found myself returning to my passion (nature) and my talents (visual arts). I decided it would be best to showcase my skills through work I had done. I compiled my work into a video resume that displayed what I was capable of, while providing a voiceover narrative detailing both where I came from and where I'm going.
