About the Creator, Eugene Chiang
My name is Eugene Chiang and I create miniature brick artworks. I started out collecting Legos and then got into building my own brick creations. The brick sets that I create all have something meaningful to me. One of my first brick sets that I created was the Buddhist Hsi Fang Temple. It is the temple that my wife Christina and have been part of for several years now. Since then, I have built many more sets. I wanted to use Lego and Lego related bricks to introduce people about Taiwan (where I am from originally) and the Chinese culture. Showcasing the Chinese New Year here at the exhibit is the perfect introduction to the Chinese culture.
我的名字是 Eugene Chiang，我創作微型磚藝術品。 我開始收集樂高積木，然後開始構建自己的作品，這些作品對我都有一些意義。 我和我太太 Christina 多年來一直參與寺廟的活動，我首批作品之一即是佛光山西方寺。 自此之後，我又製作了更多的作品。 我想用樂高和樂高相關的積木來介紹介紹人們關於台灣（我的出生地）和中國文化。此次的新年特展是介紹中國文化的完美機會。
Where is minifigure Eugene in the exhibit?
My Lego minifigure (computer programmer) is somewhere among the display sets at the exhibit. See if you can solve this riddle and find me in the display…
Because I am a Lego minifigure, I can be anywhere. But if you really want to find me, look no further than here.
因為我是Lego minifigure，所以我可以現身在任何地方。 但是，如果您準備好要找到我，請不要再找我了,我已經在這裡了。
