The Invisible Island is a graphic fiction informed by my Taiwanese queer identity. Two storylines in different times and spaces are juxtaposed throughout the book with text, drawing and found images. The work incorporates autoethnography to transcend personal narrative, aiming to humanise marginalised identities through an intersectional story.
S finds a mysterious journal from a Japanese botanist called Hibiki in her grandmother’s attic in Taiwan. Realising that Hibiki was in an intimate relationship with her grandmother in the 1940s, S begins learning about an unrevealed history, which resonates with her own life circumstances.

Often inspired by personal and subtle moments in life, I aim to transform intangible experiences into atmospheric visual narratives, connecting with viewers emotionally. I enjoy combining traditional and digital techniques to create delicate and multilayered images.
