The order of the lights
The shape of the moon
The cold white light
An imaginary moon has been created by ten thousand energy-saving bulbs and a high voltage electricity supply, allowing people to enjoy a natural phenomenon in modern cultural emporiums, replacing the moon cited in ancient poems.
Born in the late 1970s, Wang Yuyang studied at the China Central Academy of Drama and the Central Academy of Fine Arts. He is teaching at the Department of Experimental Art at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and lives and works in Beijing. His works are often created using new media, but without deliberately emphasizing the novelty of technology and more interested in the artistry brought about with “outdated” technology, “destructive” aesthetics and material waste. The works he experiments with include installations, photography, video and painting. As long as the means are conducive or appropriate to the expression, he tries to use them. He engages humor, fiction and spectacle as ways to explore and reflect the relation between the human body, experience and cognition. At the same time he also explores the relationship between artificial reality, the media, historical perception and physical cognition. His works have been exhibited in major exhibitions and art festivals in major cities in China, Europe and the United States.
