Description

Shih Chieh Huang speaks about his work and its evolution since the late 1990s.

“What [Shih Chieh Huang] generates in all of his work is a genuine sense of technology as life form”

—Sally Butler, artlink.com

Shih Chieh Huang creates sculptural ecosystems using computer parts and common objects, such as plastic bags and bottles, which he animates in installations that mix a machine aesthetic with an organic impulse. Gathering inspiration from marine biology, Huang explores bioluminescence and its role in seduction and reproduction in the deep sea.
