Abstracted from Qing’s Thesis Document:
This thesis explores concepts of fragmentation, hybridization and fluidity through integrating study, research, and experiment with the Yao culture.

The examination in the Yao Collection in the Alden Library, the international interviews, and field research in China inspired the realization, I too have transitioned in a similar pattern.
