Hallo, this is Jiayi
Hallo, I'm Jiayi, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago and a part-time artist. I enjoy making art such as collages, drawings, and paintings. This is a space that I'm posting my arts. For me, making art is a way of communication, a way of expressing complex feelings and a way of recording a piece of memory.
Currently, most art is displayed in museums. Although you can enjoy it by watching it or taking a photo of it, you can't touch it or even manipulate it. This makes art harder to communicate with.
I'm experimenting with making interactive art on web-based platforms. In this way, you can engage more with an art piece because you are actually contributing to it and putting your feeling or your memory in it. I believe in this way we could communicate more through art and inspire each other.
