Huishu Jia is a designer, conceptual artist and researcher with a master's degree from Design Products, Royal College of Art, London. Her works are mainly about human emotions and sound. By exploring the beauty of our everyday life, she is trying to uncover and amplify those everyday elements, in order to raise the appreciation of our lives. She has never limited her approaches within tangible objects, although she has been trained as a product designer for many years. Sound, film, system and playful interventions are the methods she usually uses. Her works have been exhibited in many countries, including the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London), London Short Film Festival, V&A Museum, Milan design week, etc.
