In the recent years, I have been mostly collaborating with artistic partner, physicist Dr. Shih-Wen Young. Our trans-disciplinary research mathematically analyzes an old philosophical idea: the idea that every event is necessitated by antecedent events and conditions somehow governed by the laws of nature. The research searches for
mathematically elegant equations describing the paring between cause and effect, particularly when the laws of nature seem random and unpredictable. Based on the research, our art practice creates linkage between the scientific description of randomness and its reflection in contemporary culture.
