Statement

My researching is focused on creative culture and entertainment economy which later  termed as parts of the “Culture and Creative Industry”to the business society and international trade.

It is used to take technology as the main driving force to make economy move on. For my point of view, however, creative culture indeed is the core of the trend and driving force. People who can reshape the culture play the vital part of the creative industry as well as the economy system. When they change culture they also turn the table of the economy game.

How those people reshape the culture?

Through the  technology, media or arts? Does the culture revolve  into the good or bad direction?

During the process, how many cultural goodies such as artworks, media contents or political issues are generated?

Could those things be a good examples or artifacts for next generation of responsive professionals?

All the answers could be  worthy topics to study and research.

People nowadays are complaining the Earth unbalanced by the industrialization. Could the topic of nature power or soul searching be the answers for these potential catastrophes?

That is the brief of my concentration so far. Most of my research are made in Chinese Mandarin. Some are made for international community. If you occasionally come over and would like drop by my institute located in Beijing,please contact me by click here. Thanks.
