Compared to various dazzling, glowing images that fill our everyday lives, "No Signal" is the initial image displayed before a projector is put to work, and it is the sole channel that leads to connection with visual signal. We often overlook the content of this blank, transitional image, because the message it deliver says, "There is nothing here just yet." I seek to recreate this familiar digital projection image, using traces from hand-drawn materials to create visual exchanges with visual contents, with the intention of examining the existence of images and their own dialectical presence.
Yu-Cheng Hsieh was born in 1992 in Ilan, Taiwan. He is currently studying Master of Fine Arts and majoring Media Art at New Media Art Department in Taipei National University of Arts. His artworks specialize in mixed media and spatial installations, involving neon paint and visual experience of optical illusion in more of his recent works. By focusing on virtual/substance, internal/external space and possibilities of the way of seeing, Hsieh explores the dialectical relationship of the subject between illuminator and image.
