Artist Fengjin Yu, pursued her BFA at The Art Institute of Chicago. She is originally from Hangzhou, China. Her recent project focused on exploring how digital art expresses the transformation of space, through the second interpretation of “nature” in the post-digital era.
"Second interpretation" is a re-visioning, using artwork to depict a human sensory engagement with “nature”. This "nature" is not the natural environment, instead it is rotted in human perception, I refer to this phenomenon as the “first interpretation".
The essence of my practice is to express the understanding of the "first interpretation", through art-making and research. Thereby enabling it to become the "second interpretation". This considers the internet, digital art, and the interpretation of nature, in terms of the formation of space, and the interpretations generated by ‘human’, ‘non-human’ and ‘artificial’ discourses.
