Shupin Liu - Site-specific Theatre and Spatial Experience
Shupin Liu is a site-specific theatre researcher and a spatial experience artist.
Shupin Liu is an artist, designer and practice-lead researcher who practices spatial narrative skills to create site-specific experiences.
Her interest in the human-environment interaction and cognitive experience leads her to work as a researcher and creative director in the immersive experience industry. She also works on social engagement, brand event, and city branding projects. From her experience to collaborate with creative artists from different disciplines, she learnt to interpret the design process from different perspectives and how storytelling could enhance the value of the space. Her enthusiastic in travelling leads her to underline the endemic culture in her creative practice.
Her recent works focus on the architectural space’s mediating role towards the impact of social media on social behaviour and mental health, and the architectural space’s ability to meet the intrinsically motivated needs for solitude.
Her research interests are in the ways people interact with designed spatial environments, the embodiment of emotions in the architectural space, and the relationship between art, architecture and psychology and how this contributes to mental wellbeing.
