Three SciFi Artwork

I created these 3 SciFi artwork in glass frames a few years ago, using PhotoShop and Illustrator software. They were exhibited in a gallery with a grant I received back then. Do have more saved in external hard-drive.

First one is a big bee-like creature flying. The second one is an android with a virtual reality goggle seeing people in infrared. The third one is a genetically-modified person with high-tech implants and other wearable devices.

Cat with A "Cat" Sign Language Greeting Card

I drew this cat out of my head on a sketching book with a pen. I then used color pencils to create those Cubist-alike shapes on the cat's face and the two hands. I then put a quote inside where you would read it when you open the card. Saw a framed picture of a cat with the "Cat" sign language in a gallery one day and realized that I could do that for a card, therefore, I came up with this.

Shakespeare's Immortality Poem with Dangerous Signs

I wrote this poem in English a while ago. I reopened the poem and edited it to enhance the quality of the work. I then brought it over to show Dangerous Signs the writing and then we all worked on translating this work into ASL in an interactive performance as a group. Here we were able to perform this "Shakespeare's Immortality" poem at the Little Theatre for Rochester's Fringe Festival on September 24th, 2016. I shall thank my mother for video-taping this performance.

Dangerous Signs, Saturday, Sept. 24th

I and Dangerous Signs cast members are to perform on September 24th, 1 PM, at the Little Theatre downtown Rochester, NY. It'll be free to the public. We got a critical acclaim article in the City Newspaper, mentioning our last year performance and how we almost got into American Got Talent TV show.

This year performance, we will be doing creative tasks to honor Shakespeare. No, we will not read and or perform Shakespeare's work in traditional ways. Instead, we will do songs that refer to him like how Patti Smith, well-known Godmother of punk singer/poet, mentions Shakespeare in her "Looking For You" song. We will translate that song in ASL all together as a group in interactive activities. Another example is "I Hate Shakespeare" by Spamalot play, which we sign along that song in ASL full of humor. Also, my original work "Shakespeare's Immortality" will be performed in ASL and it focuses on the fact that his work is still alive today. Other work has just mime activities without sign language, dance movements along one Shakespeare work (Romeo and Juliet), and many other experimental ideas. 

This show will be unusual and unique.
