While witness the changing hand of regime from a colonial government to a local government, and the immediate economical blooming afterwards, most of his work is associated with the urban scenery in which focuses on themes related with the system of the city/nation as well as personal identity.

In his work, he tries to rediscover fragmented and hidden records scattered around the city. Throughout these hidden fragments to reflect on what the reality is and pointing out the absurdity of the system. And during this process, explore the purpose of self-existence.
