_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.

Sight isolates, whereas sound incorporates; vision is directional, whereas sound is omnidirectional. The sense of sight implies exteriority, but sound creates an experience of interiority.” -Juhani Pallasmaa, ”The eyes of the skin”

Representing the formless void of spatiality into auditory perception, this experiment attempts to revisit a site in which its spatial volume has been translated into a wave form.

Site in Superposition consists of a laser distance sensor connected with a sound receiver set up within a space. The distance sensor is built on a two-axle rotating base enabling the sensor to gradually scan through its ambient environment. Depending on the realtime distance data of the spatial reading, a sequence of responsive signals are transmitted to manipulate the sound recording of the receiver. While processing, the system generate a stream of corresponding air particle vibration that intervene ones perception of the space.
