Artist Statement – Artificial Intelligence – Amy Chang 2021
In recent years, I have been producing a series of works under the title New Industrial Revolution. This body of work portrays my fascination with the visual language of industry energy. Levers, screws, cog wheels and other machines parts are all symbols that suggest movement, production, and the harvest of energy.
Started from 2018 the new pieces are further developing my ideas of fusing industrial elements with unknown creatures. The new group of works allowed me to explore a fantasy where all kinds of hybrid animals are equipped with mysterious and unpredictable functions. I consider this exploration my versions of Artificial Intelligence.
