Pei-Yao Chang


/ bio

Pei-Yao Chang is a media artist, researcher, and novice freediver currently based in London and Taiwan. Her practice investigates space(s) and the implications of embodied experiences based on gravitation from land and her weightless freediving journey. Fascinated by sensation, movement, and perception, she investigates and explores embodied cognition.

Her work uses a specific spatial context and employs material exploration, painting, drawing, documentation, and installation to interrogate the ways humans perceive and engage with their surroundings both actively and passively. She attempts to comprehend the Earth’s characteristics and the connection of human and non-human interaction.
