Yi-Ching (Janet) Huang got her master degree in computer science from National Taiwan University. Her research topic is focused on Social Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Human-Computer Interaction and Information visualization. She is passionate about discovering the story behind the large amounts of data. She tried to find the relationship among people, object, time, and event through different aspects. She want to leverage those findings to design better applications for fitting the human’s need in real life. She attended several workshops on interaction design and these events inspired my interest in this field. Her enthusiasm is in combing technology and design process to produce some creative work to satisfy human need or bring good experience to human.

Shen, Sheng-Po

I think the life itself is a kind of art, and many activities between people are the elements of life,that is the basic prototype of interaction, there must be at least one interactive media between us to connect you and me.Hence, I like to observe and find out the invisible connection between us, and present it through my art pieces.

Through compilation of historical data and literature research, the goal of the “Taiwan Digital Art Pulse Stream Plan” is to establish a formal history of Taiwanese digital art’s development. The first phase of the plan is an exhibition named and themed, “Body, Gender, Technology.” Amongst the vast amount of research conducted, this is the first of many themes selected, forming the exhibition’s framework, while based on historical perspectives and lineage. This exhibition uses Loh Li-Chen’s compilation of the history of new media art as its foundation to reveal a timeline of the “Taiwan’s digital art history.” Viewers are invited to experience the development of Taiwan’s digital art scene throughout its history via a timeline in the form of a digitally interactive installation, “Pulse-Taiwan’s Digital Art River.”  Spanning two generations of creative works, eleven artworks based on the theme, “Body, Gender, Technology,” by fourteen artists are the centerpieces of this exhibition.  The artists express their state of mind and body within a digital realm, as well as examine their awareness about the concept of personal existence.

About Shin Len Yuan Art Space (Sly Art Space)

SLY Art Space was established in 1995 by some of the members from another group “Apartment No. 2”. They gathered totally 20 artists and started showing their works using the space formerly belonged to “Apartment No. 2” which was by then dismissed. Since then, the location and membership of this collective co-operative gallery run by artists themselves have been through several shifting.

One of the special features of SLY Art Space is its organization. Every two years, the membership will have a reshuffle. Some old members will resign and give vacancy to allow new faces in. Members have to share the payment of rent, utilities and one office assistant, as well as develop new ideas of how to run the space better.
