Currently, the artist works in Taipei. In recent years, he has been using sound and plastic pipes as the basic elements for his creative expression. He aims to use hearing in order to affect the inertial thoughts people usually have towards space and place. By means of dislocation, the audience is allowed to rediscover the space, while the medium itself is the communication material of the artist.
Solo exhibitions include: The Invisible Sound at Liang Gallery in Taipei in 2016, Treesure House at Waterloo Arts in Cleveland in 2015, As We Hear/Say organized by the Taishin Bank Foundation for Arts and Culture in 2015, Transformation of Experience at 789 Chicken Farm in Taoyuan in 2013, and Sound Home at Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts in 2011.

He specializes in interactive mechanical installation. His work often combines physical principles or winding machines by applying a toy-like interactive mechanism inside. The viewers' active intervention triggers the mechanism, which follows a series of corresponding actions of the work. Recently, the artist brought digital technology into his works to explore new possibilities of connection between sculpture and space by the digital control device.
