Wenchi Su and Pei-Ying Lin
Accelerate Taiwan, funded by the Ministry of Culture for Taiwan
The winners of Accelerate Taiwan are the digital artist Pei-Ying Lin and the dancer and choreographer Wenchi Su.
Wenchi Su is a Taiwanese dancer, new media artist and choreographer. In 2005, she founded YiLab. in Taiwan, an experimental group of new media and performance artists working on integrating new technology with the performing arts, and seeking to present new performing formats. YiLab.’s philosophy is: in a work, there is not just one dominant medium, only concepts that appear similar but collide with one another; every artist involved is an independent entity who can freely put forward their viewpoint and undertake in-depth exploration of the core significance of the theme. She's interested in how human beings shift their understanding of perception through the history of technological innovation and through what remains of the physical body. She's also curious about whether the ultimate goal of new technology is aiming for a better future or for the past.
Pei-Ying Lin is a Taiwanese designer, artist, and programmer, who's also the founder of the Taiwanese BioArt Community, and co-founder of Ouroboros - Organic Organism of O.
