Born in Fuzhou, China in 1991, Lin first entered the Graduate School of Transdisciplinary Arts in 2017 as a student in the Master’s Program. Upon graduation in 2021, he joined the Graduate School as assistant. His research centers on the contrasting philosophies of life, death and time between East and West, through analyses of medieval and modern artwork. Based on this research, he creates generative art that uses technology to express his unique interpretation of human thought and ways of thinking, as demonstrated in his solo exhibition “The Pilgrimage of life: Birth, aging, sickness, death & pleasure, anger, sadness, joy” (Akita University of Art Satellite Center; 2020).
