Artist-CHANG Yung-Ta
CHANG Yung-Ta, born in Taiwan in 1981, is autodidact and residing in Taipei currently. His works take on a variety of forms such as Audio-Visual, experimental sound, installations and live performances. He focus and be skilled in observing the tiny change, being ignored phenomenon and sound in daily life, then represent the invisible signal and data via sound or visual installation in space. In recent years, also collaborated with dancers, musicians and artists. His works has been featured in numerous group shows and festivals throughout Asia, Europe, Australia, North and South America.
“Evolving from the coupling between perceptions and systems to the sounding and volumetric composition in the art museum, CHANG’s Relative Perception N°1[0°–N°] addresses the following question: how can we palpate the world with the ear? CHANG deliberately puts this work in a dynamic state. Instead of installing a sculpture in the art museum, the artist reorganizes the space of the museum and the viewers’ perceptions with an instrument installation. This work produces different sounds of vaporization in the exhibition room by dropping water on several heated metal plates of different angles of inclination. In other words, the proportional and material relationships between sounds and volumetric composition are highlighted through the energy conversion carried out by the artist’s installations. Through Relative Perception N°1[0°–N°], CHANG intends to break our perceptional inertia concerning the environment and highlight the interaction between somatosensory perceptions and auditory perception. This approach takes the viewers into an uncharted territory mapped with sounding and volumetric composition.” (Abstracted from GUO Jau-Lan, Traversing the Hinterland between Sounding and Volumetric Composition)
