Shyu is known for creating machine-like art work. By using mechanical form as an abstract art language to express his various ideas and feelings towards life, memory, and issues concerning environment, society, and politics. A work of art may be composed of a single or hundreds to thousands of different components which he designed and made by himself 95% of these; yet, despite this massive complexity, visually it leaves an impression of simplicity.
