Wang Hsin-Jen is Taiwan’s frontier audiovisual artist. His works have received multiple recognition at home and abroad and have won the first prize in the Digital Art Festival Taipei in 2012 and 2015. He is an expert at creating geometric images that match up with breakbeat electro music, infusing his works with the care and concern for people and the land. He emerges as a new star with his fantastic and cyberpunk style.
In recent years, his works have been predominately focused on social issues, from student movements to territorial disputes. He reshapes the past in algorithms and uses point clouds to subvert our current understanding of the world. Whether in art or issues, he possesses strong personal views and aesthetics, bringing the audience visual feasts with great impact.
The VR version of PATHS TO THE PAST is different from the dual-channel version with an automatic scheduling algorithm. This version allows viewers to intervene in the work's fluid and derivative state, choosing the viewing perspective freely. Every viewer's body movement is to be recorded and transformed into triggering media; thus, the viewing experiences will be distinctive, and no one is duplicable. As with the "observer effect," when measured (or observed), the work takes on an unpredictable reality, reflecting the ever-changing relationship between the artist and his home.
