Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

Sheung Yiu is a Hong-Kong-born image-based artist and independent researcher based in Helsinki. My research interest concerns the increasing complexity and agency of computer-generated imagery (CGI) in contemporary digital culture. Investigating cultural ideas and technical apparatuses beyond the pictorial surface, he problematizes the representational understanding of photography. He seeks to expand its ontology by formulating the connections between photography theories and new forms of realism, object-oriented ontology, cybernetics, computational theory, and post-internet thinking. Engaging with artistic practice and multi-disciplinary collaboration as a mode of research, his works examine the production, aesthetics, poetics, and politics of CGI, such as computer vision, photogrammetry, remote sensing, and computer simulation.
