Yishuai Zhang is an artist and researcher specializing in the demystification of the entanglement between art and science. His artworks intend to explore and navigate a spectrum of dynamic resonance between organisms and machines based on the progression of his interdisciplinary research on contemporary computational art theory. The media of his works vary from painting, installation, performance, to digital and computational expressions.
Aligned with modern process philosophical thought, queer- and techno-science feminist theory, his research questions the anthropocentric relations between machines and organisms that strictly follows a doctrine of mechanical reductionism, while explores innovative opportunities for human-computer interaction. He simulates speculative process metaphysics to bring the meaning of art into more aspects of this multi-modal reality. He is currently pursuing the MFA Computational Arts program at Goldsmiths, University of London.
