For his MFA thesis project, Tu+ created Surface, a stunning short film that features a stream of anonymous New Yorkers going about their daily lives, shown from below, as if through a translucent floor. "It is the exploration of new visual language from an unconventional point of view," explains Tu+. Surface placed first in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards and won praise from a number of design blogs. The film was also shown in several international festivals and brought Tu+ plum assignments from prominent firms. But what pleases Tu+ most is the enthusiastic comments posted on his website. "I'm so glad people love my project. It has encouraged me to make future projects better than ever."
