LAST UPDATE : 2017.02.24 / EDITOR : avatintern
9 artworks / 36 exhibition

Born in Kaohsiung, TAIWAN in 1982.

Work across the area of sound, sculpture, video, kinetic art and sound installation.

Wang Chung-Kun is one of the rising stars in Media art in Taiwan. He has created various forms of machinery that have consistently maintained an intriguing purity and peculiar sense of beauty. As the viewers approach, these machines operate on their own untiringly. Sound-making, switching on and off, exhaling, spinning or twinkling, they can simply do more than a single action. Rather, they have their own rhythm variation, as if they have a life of their own.

The ‘Kong‧Qi’ series and the ‘sound of bottles’ series are masterpieces of Wang. The ‘Kong‧Qi – Installation’ in 2011 has made Wang win the ‘Kaohsiung Awards – Observer Award’. Also, the collaboration with Huang Yi, a famous dancer in ‘Symphony Project - I.violin’ in 2010 won him the First Prize in the Digital Art Performance Award of the Digital Art Festival in Taipei. Other significant exhibitions included ‘+-*/’, his solo sound installation exhibition in 2010 and ‘Transjourney – 2012 Future Media Festival’ in 2012 etc.

Wang lives and continues his creation in Taipei. He is interested and good at sound art, kinetic sculpture and interactive art.

Wood-fish
Machines are not something we feel intimate with; however, the artist believes that machines have their own lives. The integration of multiple materials creates perfect balance between intimacy and alienation as if it were creating a brand new life form. Meanwhile, the artist is interested in the exploration of the use of sound. Sound might be a kind of forceful and violent perception to viewers, but, to think of it from a different perspective, it also validates the values of the work. The i ...

sound.of.bottles-installation#3
The ideas of creating the Sound of Bottles came from the sounds made by bottles when air is blown into them. A simple bottle has rich overtones whose frequencies can be changed through alteration of water levels, air flow or back-and-forth movement. With two bottles, the interference of the audio frequencies creates more effects. Electromagnetic gas valves control the tempos through the signals of 0 and 1 sent by an Arduino microcontroller board (the same principle is applied to the switches ...

Kong.Qi – installation#1
This device is the first version of “Kong.Qi”, which is created to find other possible ways to discuss the human’s sense toward sound apart from hearing. Sound is produced from vibration, and is transmits through specific mediums, ‘air’ is the premier medium to human’s hearing, but, from daily life experience, we are able to find out we are able to sense the sound not only from hearing, when experiencing the ground shaking caused from a passing by heavy truck, as well the low frequency sound ...
