_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.

The concept of an atmosphere can be understood as a highly divided space in which human-made boundaries subdivide the natural environment through regulation and law.

My focus lies upon the demarcation of time and space as a human-made construction. The invisible division between time zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions instead of strictly following longitude. In some areas such as western Ireland, the division of time thus deviates to pass around its national territory. (Coastline)

This project uses light as a vehicle to bridge two western headlands of Ireland at midnight. The light beam strikes from one headland (0 hr) towards another over the North Atlantic Ocean (-1 hr). In a sense, it starts from today, passes through yesterday, and then returns to today again.
