As a child I always loved to touch things – and when I grew up I loved anything that engaged my senses: gardening, cooking, Legos, machinery – even gauges. Maybe it was because I didn’t go to school. Chairman Mao had said we needed to be re-educated by the workers, farmers and soldiers. I spent my childhood in an abandoned field of an aeronautics campus; airplane wings became slides and scraps of metal were our toys. I learned through making radios for people, speedometers for cars and sheet metal for airplanes.
