Zhengyang Huang

Class of 2021

My art practice started from a class project in 2016. For that project, everyone, imitating the practice of Rachel Whiteread, picked a void, and cast the void with plaster, and then wrote an essay about it. I cast the inside space of a spotlight and, based on the famous story The Little Match Girl, I wrote a fictional essay for the cast of the light. The approach of combining different practices intrigues me, and from there I continued with the hybrid method of making. Currently I’ve been working and researching on: writings in a website platform, online culture of video commenting and its textual forms, fictional writing, avatar-creation, and operating system design; some of the practices are combined to approach a series of topics.
