Kachi is an interdisciplinary artist, technologist based in Hong Kong and London. He is primarily interested in using computational animation and virtual reality technologies to build worlds, atmospheres, and transformative experiences that are outside of the traditional animation paradigm. His animation works were presented at venues including Ars Electronica (Austria), Art Basel (Hong Kong), The Sea World Culture and Arts Center (China) and NHK TV (Japan). Kachi was awarded Golden Pin Design Award 2019 (Taiwan), Async International Short Film Festival Award #3, and ‘Best-of’ Ars Electronica Animation Festival 2018.
After graduating from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, Kachi was fully funded by the Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme to pursue a Master’s degree at the Royal College of Art, where he developed a keen interest in human-computer interaction. His works at RCA were mostly about multi-sensory experiential research. He also seeks to blend his animation sensibilities with AI and interactive technologies.
Besides his own projects, Kachi also works as creative technologist for commissioned projects. He has cooperated with brands and institutions like Adidas, National Geographic Channels, Herman Miller, Hong Kong Science Museum and Hong Kong Tourism Board.
