Yu ZHANG (NL/CN) approaches Interactive Art with mixed reality installations and projections, sensor-based interactives and computational arts. She roots her artistic intent in the symbolism of Asian traditions and transforms the artistic unpacking of drama and cultural signifiers into experiences of interactivity and connectivity that ultimately bridge artistic expression and audience experience. Especially interactivity is an indispensable aspect of her work that creates and transcends audience presence into known and perceived aspects of the audience’s being. Starting from simple interactives, she constructs layers of different connections between artist, artwork, audience, and the environment to express how far such connectivity can impact and reshape the structure and relations of objects, space, and time within a dynamic audience experience.
