Through his creative practice, Dennis demonstrates the boundless possibilities of design by integrating the Hulu motif across diverse mediums, including sculpture, jewellery and even cafes. Traditionally symbolising blessings and protection, the Hulu has been the central design element in Qeelin’s captivating jewellery lines, adorning rings, necklaces and earrings. Dennis employs this timeless symbol as a vessel to convey messages that transcend cultural boundaries. The entire display showcases Dennis’ ability to break free from artistic silos and bridge gaps across various mediums and cultures with infectious creativity.

This display approach accentuates the fundamental elements, structure and proportions of the design, enabling visitors to understand the starting point and core characteristics of each work. Another work, New 9 Sins, also employs an innovative display method. Through augmented reality (AR), viewers can explore five pieces of the complete woodblock print set from different angles, experiencing various visual effects.

He has been involved in numerous national-level architectural projects and has received over 160 international architectural design awards, including Dubai, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Shanghai, Beijing, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, the Asia-Pacific region, and Hong Kong.

And over time, PolyU Design has nurtured thousands of design graduates over the past six decades. Their designs have changed the world, showcasing the transformative power of countless "hours" in their work.
