As one of the few artists who engage in multi-media and various practices, Wang’s works, which include installation, photography, moving image and painting, is not without strong critical takes. In his previous projects, such as Moon-landing Program, Artificial Moon, Dust is Dust, Breath Series and A Painting series, Wang objectified the entities by spectacles deriving from mockery and humor, which aimed to investigate and represent the relationship among human bodies, experiences and perceptions. His works also try to discuss the logic connection among artificial reality, media, historical recognition and body identification. The conversion between QR Code and Chinese characters in Picture and Character, the transformation of artist’s brain waves into electrical currents stored in batteries inElectricity, both require viewers to adopt the artist’s perspective, which is beyond the common aesthetic experience. In Wang’s artistic system, he incorporates the logic of science and sociology with his expression, rebuilds dreams and desires toward technology in the name of art, at the same time draws a complex reflection upon social organism.
