Pei-Yao Chang is a media artist, a researcher and a two-year novice freediver currently based in London. Her practice investigates space(s) and the implication of embodied experiences based on gravitation from land and her weightless freediving journey. As such, fascinated by sensation, movement, and perception, she investigates and explores embodied cognition.
Pei-Yao Chang's current work uses a specific spatial context, and employs ecological and environmental psychology to interrogate the ways humans perceive and engage with their surroundings both actively and passively, attempting to comprehend the boundaries and connections of human and non-human interaction. This is done through an investigation of the tensions and slack through material exploration, documentation, film, sculpture and installation.
