Ziyu He is learning to be a human, living as a new media artist.
Her work is multidisciplinary, ranging from kinetic sculptures that digitally transport air movements from Antarctica; 3D work that sources video game avatars, fragmenting and pausing virtual deaths;a custom software that explores and challenges sexuality in the cyber age.
She is attracted to subjects that are unquantifiable, undefinable, by things that are invisible, subtle or beyond great boundaries, which then is she able to connect to larger archetypes,such as identity, sexuality, consumption or death.
Graduated from NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program in 2018, currently in New York. In resident at Laboratory from March to May 2019.

Air Transport is an inquiry and short study on air movements,
transporting air from one physical space through a digital vehicle to another.
This is an attempt to bridge spaces that are separated by magnificent boundaries,
to physicalize objects that can only be felt at present.
Three pieces each using an individual aerodynamic, are representing a set of realtime data of
the air movement at south pole, Amundsen Scott station.
The semi-sphere container visualizes the visibility degree.
The floating balloon simulates the atmospheric pressure. The propeller translates the wind speed.
