- UUendy Lau is a designer-artist who creates projects that provoke alternative speculations on nature. The main theme of her work centres on ‘animals and nature’, a universal and inclusive subject permeating all cultures, languages, lifestyles and beliefs. Through a speculative lens of imagination and humanised envision, she conducts curious observations on our environmental interaction and redefine our connection with nature. The concept also communicates her design philosophy highlighting ‘engagement’ and ‘empowerment’ in daily moments, alongside re-examining the artistic and cultural significance carried in peculiar subjects from new perspectives. UUendy Lau creates design probes that spark discussions, embrace shared values and enhance social experience towards our insight into nature.
