“Artificial Moon” by artist Wang Yuyang is a sculpture composed of hundreds of energy saving light bulbs of different shapes and sizes.
Wang Yuyang, born in 1979, is an accidental new media artist. Interested in obsolete technology, an aesthetics of the broken, and material waste, his practice involves highly conceptual installation, photography, and video. Recent works have carried on the tradition of the post-sense sensibility generation, employing humorous and pseudo-spectacular tactics to interrogate the relationship between body, experience, and cognition. His work has been shown in major exhibitions and festivals across China and Europe
