Wong Chi-chuen (Hong Kong)
The noise of the spinning propeller, which drives the rotation movement, amplifies the uneasiness, tension and fragility of the human depiction. An LED TV is disassembled, modified and backlit by a custom circular light to become semi-transparent to display a stabilised video of a woman taken from overhead. Undermine contrasts and balances a disturbing kinetic movement with the slow pace of a natural body movement.
Wong’s works explore the delicate relationship between daily experiences and perceptual stimulations by hybridising analogue and digital representations. Wong is interested in exploring visual patterns, motions, and sound textures, as well as presenting works in the form of computational kinetic sculptures. Wong actively works as a collaborating artist, multimedia designer, mechanical engineer/ designer, and art researcher.
