Timothy Liu, a social designer from Taiwan, now based in the Netherlands. In my practice I use narratives and uncanny objects as tools to investigate social and cultural mechanisms, where I question ‘normal’ through the norms of our social infrastructure, rather than new functions.
Graduated from MA Social Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven. I am exploring the intersection of speculative design, installation and curation. My works intend to invert what exists already, and to inverse the infrastructure of norms which unfold in the notion underlying the rapid development of cultural transformation and hybridity beyond an assumed hierarchy, using impossible objects and services to catalyze the social imagination, the collective imagination.
He also works as a freelance graphic designer focusing on visual identity(VI), branding and graphic design. He undertakes design work across a broad spectrum, applying his graphic design techniques with his social design perspective, from two-dimensional graphics to spatial design such as exhibition and signage systems.
