About me

Hi, I’m Ngai Chun Cheung.

English is not my first language. I was born in Germany, 1986. My parents are working class and they keep the world going. I tried a different take on it. Soon i will be two decades on the internet. And this is probably why i don’t know how to make friends. I have build since 1999 a lot of things in the web, and outside of it, in combination and separate. It made me learn to design all kind of stuff, to code in different languages, to run things, to photograph, to make videos and much more.

Just never enough. Because at some point, i burned out, created a great wall around me, and tried to rescue myself. I cut off all connections to people, except my parents. This is the period where i was for 8 years geography student at University of Bonn. I was in a really depressive time, but then i have gone steps back, doing real life things, like origami. To get a little more distance from the bubble.

In late 2013, i started to fold origami cranes in Paris, and after four years, in late 2017, i folded over 8000 origami cranes, in cities like Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Bonn, London, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Utrecht, The Hague, Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Edinburgh, Dublin and Lisbon.
