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.

Over Here, Over There

Observation | 07:25-11:20 GMT, 21 May, 2020, Central London, UK

Data generated crystalline structure | Metal solution, Electronics, Data

The electromagnetic environment has been redistributed as a result of human ambitions on the interconnected network. These electromagnetic impulses traveling through the sky invisibly and silently to form a quality communication. When a signal/message is sent out, what else does it contact?

In this project, directional antennas connected with containers of liquid metal were set up within an urban environment. Each of the setups is able to receive the electromagnetic field propagating through space at a given time. Depending on the fluid volume of the electromagnetism, the liquid metal organise accordingly amd self-evolve into crystalline structures. Resembling in some way like a living system, this microenvironment subtly grown out of information that is randomly fed by human intervened ambient condition.
