For her works, she starts with milk, coffee and vinegar. She first pours them together with ink onto a glass plate to see how they flow freely.

She then photographs the scene, imports the images to a computer and prints out one the ones she likes.

She also uses computer programming to turn these images into video installations, which are also displayed at the current exhibition.

"Eastern art is essentially the expression of a life attitude, and in a way like the practice of Zen," she says.

"Western art seeks to challenge and rebel, while Chinese art is about how to make peace with the world and, more importantly, how men can integrate themselves into nature."
