_about

Weng Wei Hsiang is a media artist and researcher currently based between Taipei, TW and London, UK. His practice investigates the intersection between artificial and natural systems to examine how we, as humans, share, co-produce and sense time and space. Employing materials such as air, light, sound, and data, he constructs devices, situations, and experimental set-ups within spatial and landscape settings. These set-ups often play the role of both observer and creator, mediating our perspectives of dynamic situations and living systems, and the relationships create a dissonance that leads to unpredictable outcomes which test how physical movement, sensory engagement and the interaction of the body and brain influence our perception of our environment.

Weng Wei Hsiang 翁偉翔 is a media artist and researcher currently based between Taipei, TW and London, UK. His practice investigates the intersection between artificial and natural systems to examine how we, as humans, share, co-produce and sense time and space. Employing materials such as air, light, sound, and data, he constructs devices, situations, and experimental set-ups within spatial and landscape settings. These set-ups often play the role of both observer and creator, mediating our perspectives of dynamic situations and living systems, and the relationships create a dissonance that leads to unpredictable outcomes which test how physical movement, sensory engagement and the interaction of the body and brain influence our perception of our environment.

Much of his recent work and research has focused on the concept of man made boundaries as the main field of interrogation. He designs meeting points for a variety of organic and synthetic fragmentations, allowing them to interact and self-evolve. Those encounters manifest themselves in new forms of temporality, morphology or scale, in which he envisions a potential coexistence between humans and nature.

Wei Hsiang was awarded first prize in Kaohsiung Arts Award and was one of the artists selected to take part in Reshaping History - China Youth New Art; in addition, he had also been invited to the Asian Art Biennial, Boston CyberArts, and the Avant-Garde Diaries by Mercedes-Benz.
