Born in 1970 in Tainan, Taiwan, Huang graduated from the Department of Fine Arts and Crafts in National Taiwan College of Arts. He specializes in Taiwanese-style pop art collage, 3D memory devices, and graphic bookbinding design. Interested in flea markets and second-hand bookstores, he is also fascinated with popular and contemporary culture, local customs, history, trend, fusion of pop art and the classic, and the hybrid culture which seems to be conflicting to each other. Huang aspires to find a suitable path between the concepts of “globalization” and “localization” for further exploration in art.
Concept－Random waste along the coast shows the concept of drifting objects (second hand information) and a floating island. The former is the instant visual effect built up by the objects while the latter is the context of how these objects connect together in the first place and then an imaginary mother island is formed. It was a floating island piled up by the remains of wars, colonization, weather, or even garbage shipment.
Media－Different objects sealed up by resin and some ready-made things are placed in a wooden box. Transparent resin disappears against the dark background and shows up against the bright background (salt crystal). It seems that some invisible variations or undertows have affected the visual effect of these objects, which also converts the content into another type of image writing.
