Left Brain, Right Brain is an experimental book that investigates my experience of living in Hong Kong through the two hemispheres of my brain. The book expresses data visualizations (the left side) and collage abstractions (the right side) about distance, connection, existence and consumption. The book was created by using a gate fold interaction–with both the left and right side opening up side by side so the viewer can experience the contrasts and comparisons between the two sides.
This project was featured in Applied Arts Magazine, shown at their Winner's Collection Exhibit in Toronto, and published in multiple art books throughout China and the US.
The left brain part displays these topics through a series of data visualizations, while the right brain part expresses the information through experimental collages.
The final spread, screen printed, tells the story of the book through the overlap of Chinese and English languages coming together, reflecting the blend of these two cultures throughout Hong Kong.
