“To reuse wasted products or buying new things, I sometimes struggle with them. Then I use to make one by myself instead of buying. Over a long period of time, I have this habit and develop some skills via those process by modifying, recycling some E-waste or secondhand materials.” ---Hsien-Yu CHENG
This process is also concerned with his creative works. he tries to symbolize or bring some thoughts and things are happened around our life, society even nature that he doesn't like into his works. Maybe those things that he doesn't want to see or he doesn't like are not really important for many people, but he still keep collecting those phenomenons that are happened around us. So he starts to have this project “Collector”. It’s not only collecting abandoned objects or E-waste, it’s also collecting sanctimonious justice, value and humanity.
