Zai (Zehao Chang) is an MFA student of Design | Media Arts at UCLA. He obtained his B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College (2001), followed by a M.S. in Electrical Engineering (2003) from UCLA. The switch from engineering to media arts is the surfacing of his inherent nature to push and explore culturally-defined arbitrary boundaries by cross-pollinating seemingly opposing ideas.
His current emphasis in media arts includes not only computer-mediated data-oriented work, but also the exploration of ambience as a vehicle to convey message and meaning.
