At the heart of their artistic practice lies a commitment to creating immersive environments that engage the senses and provoke thought. Through their mastery of light, sound, and interactive technology, Chu and Xue transcend traditional boundaries, redefining the parameters of artistic expression in the digital age.

Chu's fascination with the interplay of light and space permeates her work, from illuminating arena-scale live performances to crafting intimate spatial experiences and interactive art. Her works serve as captivating testaments to the transformative potential of illumination, inviting viewers to reconsider their relationship with their surroundings. In her previous work, After Glow III, Chu delves into the dynamic interplay between tangible physical space and intangible perception. Through a harmonious symphony of light and sound, she challenges viewers to question assumptions and embrace the fluidity of perception.

With Parallel, Chu and Xue navigate the terrain of human connection and isolation, employing innovative mediums to provoke introspection and dialogue. When audiences move in front of the installation, they are captured and visualised by lights and projection in real time. The work confronts the nuances of human connection and finds solace in the interplay between solitude and communion. The viewers became both observers and participants, co-creating a reality responding to their presence and movements.

"Our projects aim to create a form of human connection that invites the audience to become active co-creators, engaging with and participating in the experience rather than merely observing." - Daphne Ting-Yu Chu, Teng Xue

Flow is an interactive lighting installation that uses movement to engage with light, creating an immersive experience. LED strips with dynamic pixels respond in real-time to people's movements. As participants dance to the music, their 'Flow' is captured and visualised through lights that illuminate the space.

The interactive sound-visual installation Afterglow captures the 'Afterglow' of an occupant's impact in space, both physical and perceived.

By reconstructing the room using light and sound, Chu created a fluid, ever-changing perception of space that responds to occupant behaviour, inviting viewers to explore the boundary between tangible physical space and intangible perceived space through sensory perception, light, and sound.
