Chien-Ni Hung
My work often questions the perspectives: who is seeing it and what exactly is being seen. When do these two come to a point where they realize and become aware of each other’s existence? How does my work relate to one perceiver, and how does this one person relate to the others who are also in presence of my works. I’ve worked with varies mediums such as video, installation and performance, and more recently my work develops towards the direction of interactive installations. I’m particularly interested in a specific space and the experience being shared amongst the audience members and my works. The question is how they mutually affect one another and henceforth change the work itself.
