About

Wu Chia-Yun (b.1988, Taiwan) received an MA degree in Visual Communication from the Royal College of Art (London) and an MFA degree in Motion Picture from the National Taiwan University of Arts (Taipei). Her work includes film, mixed media and spatial installation focusing on the production and research of fictional film. With the former experience in filmmaking, she has applied the technique of film narration, mise en scène and cinematic language into the creation of visual art. To challenge the philosophy of time-based media art, she has been examining the relationships between material and image, and altering the image and sound of film into installation in real space.
