Bookmark: Yao Chung-han
By The Contributing Artist
For Bookmark, ArtAsiaPacific invites an artist to spotlight some of their online sources of inspiration. This week we asked Yao Chung-han.
The work of Taiwanese artist Yao Chung-han bridges sound art, performance and installation. Initially experimenting with ambient sounds such as in By Train in 5 Minutes (2005), in which a train is heard accelerating from 0 to 80 km per hour in five minutes, Yao has since developed complex, interactive installations, using computer software to manipulate fluorescent lights, speakers and lasers. Recent works, including I Will Be Broken (2012) and The Universe of Harmony (2011) can be viewed on the artist's Vimeo page.
