His works are often presented in diverse forms and mediums, including installation, video, sound, and sculpture.

Two Suns is an abstract representation of two ambiguous relationships. The first one started when the artist's grandfather left their house and started living in an elderly home. It was then that the artist felt the presence of his grandfather for the very first time. The second relationship unveiled itself during a visit the artist paid to the elderly home. His grandfather recalled the days when he moved to Hong Kong on his own, and mentioned a lady he would never forget. Despite their mutual feeling  towards each other, she left hastily and got married in Hawaii. Now they are 18 hours away, decades apart.

'If you had never left, we would be living under the same sun.'

《對照》是兩段曖昧關係的抽象。第一段關係始於藝術家的爺爺離家,開始獨自住在安老院之時。從那時起,藝術家才感受到爺爺在家中的溫度。第二段關係發生在一次安老院探訪中,爺爺向他憶述起婚後獨自到香港生活的鎖事,提到了一位不曾被忘記的女友人。儘管他們彼此相惜,她還是匆匆離別,在夏威夷結了婚。如今,他們彼此相距十八小時。

「若你未曾離開,我們或許會活在同一個太陽下。」
