In her diverse projects, you could find a consistency, which is the imagination and exploration of boundaries, and public participation. Her working spaces are not limited to art museums or theaters, but ranging from hutongs to public squares. In recent years, her works and art projects are closely connected with community engagement.She is currently working with the Deaf community in Beijing, using different art forms to raise the awareness of Chinese Sign Language, help build the community, and make their voice truly heard.Her first sign language theatre piece Ripples in Me was chosen to have its premier in Wuzhen Theatre Festival Youth Unit in October,2018.
