_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.

Reshaping is a living topographical structure that is still evolving, with an embedded configuration concealed behind its external form.
Assuming that nature is a force that could be extended, manipulated, and is a medium that is free from natural physical constraints, how, then, could we manipulate nature, and how could it be presented? Composed with a morphable, flexible interface, a mountain is slowly pushed up by the mechanical structure hidden under the interface of this art piece, and it slowly ebbs and becomes flat again. Another island also gradually caves in towards the center till it completely disappears. The two progress in spectacular ways but are also canceling each other out to simulate a sense of balance in nature.
