This project underwent an intriguing journey. My original idea revolved around crafting a storybook devoid of pre-printed narratives, allowing individuals to weave their own tales.

In order to test my story book, I lived with a family in Working for one day. However, the feedback is negative. The lady said as a mother, she actually wants toys that can let the kids play themselves as she paid for toys to exchange freedom. At the same time, the comments I gathered from internet shows similar result.

That raised an idea in my brain: an adult version of Polly Pocket, the toy for adults and a toy of reality.

I have also embarked on an exploration of expanding my artistic medium from two-dimensional to three-dimensional. Venturing into the realm of C4D and plaster, this transition brings about a fascinating reversal of the previous visual format.

We are just like these containers, mouse in the office or cigarette in bar. The scenes and figures inside are reflections of ourselves outside.The black humour behind these toys can be a great outlet. Adult’s emotions are also entitled to be vented. Life is not as beautiful as the Polly pocket world, so there is no need to pretend happy if you are not. Just be who you really are. And that’s all.

On 25 April 2021, my work was fortunate to participate in an online exhibition  I-N-S-I-D-E and received thousands of views. 

"We live in cities, moving through buildings. We walk out of the subway, go into the cubicle. We get into the cab, we jump to the dance floor... Everything is so natural-- all is so granted. Until we were bombarded with messages telling us to "Close the Door", "Keep Safe" and "Stay Inside". All this turned out to be true. The meaning of time and the dimensions of life have changed as never before. We wait, fret. And we accept.

But we didn't stop and never gave up. Listen to the colors of flowers on the walls, dance to the rhythm of jazz with the clouds. It turns out that art is the collision of heart and heart in the air and will never be imprisoned by steel and cement.

So, remember this weird and wonderful time with I-N-S-I-D-E. You can witness, reflect and remember the hard time with us, and fight for the space that belongs to us, from inside to outside."
