2018年很榮幸申請到本地少有的藝術計畫 —— Rimbun Dahan一年本地藝術家的駐村。在一年的駐村裡，對於創作的想法以及實踐有更廣闊以及深入的想法，也認識到來自很多地方的藝術家，尤其是本地藝術家之間的交流，讓我對自己的身分認同以及長大的土地有進一步的認識。
除了平日創作日常，Rimbun Dahan 也常舉辦各種不同類型的藝術活動邀請大眾參觀，其中一個即為藝術家工作室開放日。
Rimbun Dahan 於十二月參與吉隆坡畫廊週末（GWKL）展出 Rimbun Dahan 二十四年駐村藝術家的藏品，展現馬來西亞藝術發展不可或缺的一面。駐村中的藝術家也於當日開放工作室讓大眾參與。
In 2018, I am honored to be accepted as a year-long artist in Rimbun Dahan. During this year, I had a broader and deeper understandin
g of ideas and practices. I met many artists from the world. But I must say that impressive me the most is the local artists. They let me rethink my identity and understanding the land I grew up in.
