To celebrate Photoshop's 25th Anniversary, Adobe approached me
and gave me an honor to be a part of their milestone.
This campaign involves 25 visual artists and called
Photoshop 25 Under 25. Each of us will stage two weeks takeover
of a brand new Photoshop channel on Instagram.
First of all, I choose dance because it shows movements and tension.
There are now many varieties of dance and I have to thinking
professionally, so I can’t randomly saying,
“Okay, I pick Ballet because it’s really popular and beautiful!”.
That’s absolutely unprofessional.
I need to find a solid reason as a part of my creative process
and my choice, goes to Modern Dance, because it reflects a style that is devoid
of the restrictions of classic dance and focused on free-interpretations
derived from inner emotions. It fits perfectly with my inner movement idea.
I always fascinated by the legend of koi fish because it's all about the koi
who gain strength by swimming against the current and waterfall.
When the struggling koi refused to give up and reached the top of waterfall,
it will turned into a dragon.
It starts from ourselves, from our inner emotion and once again,
it’s all about inner movement. Something inside me clicked and I decided
to fuse the modern dance and koi fish into one idea.
ADOBE MAX 2015 // October 3-7, 2015, Los Angeles, California
We got our seat of honor at the Adobe MAX -the world's leading creativity conference in Los Angeles, California. Humbly, seeing my name and my nationality as a part of Adobe family make me wanna say thank you to everyone who still supported me throughout my career.
Started from the bottom, struggle with acceptance, and now I'm here. This ain't my last harbour of my sailing, just another pit stop for my ship and I'm looking forward for my next destination.
