With a background in 3D, creative coding and game design, new media artist Wantong Yao builds interconnected systems exposing imbalanced power dynamics and fuzzy boundaries between entanglements. Referring to her own experience of undergoing surgeries, Yao’s work focuses on the malleability of the body. By treating the body as an object, a landscape, or a system of algorithms, she tries to see beyond the dichotomy of virtuality vs. materiality and seeks for a post-corporeal re-embodiment through her practice.
