HUNG’s earlier creative research projects focus on exploring human limitations. Through interactive and moving digital images, the artist ventures into extending these limitations with the use of digital media technology. In his latest creative research projects, he further re-appropriates and enquires on the intricate relationships among Chinese philosophy of Dao, the concept of ‘Yellow Box’, viewers and digital moving images. On the academic front, he has always been interested in applying innovative concepts on learning & teaching as well as academic researches.

In the area of scholarly and innovative activities, HUNG’s PhD research focuses on re-appropriating Chinese art in the context of digital media through theoretical development and creative practice. He has published and exhibited a number of significant academic research papers, posters and creative and experimental research projects in various significant international refereed journals, exhibitions, biennial and international conferences for the aforesaid knowledge domains.

HUNG is regarded as the first Chinese artist and director to win these two international awards and four of his video works were selected to take part in the BBC Short Film Festival at the same year.
