Hongjie Yang's practice explores the power of transformation by bringing in wide range of disciplines into the world of art, design and technology. Venturing into parallel universes, the designer-artist based in the Netherlands blends fact and fiction, the familiar and uncanny to speak the increasingly fluid times we live in. What emerge from his journeys are otherworldly objects that liquify our dualities of existence to offer glimpses of liberating possibilities. They are an alchemy of Yang’s investigations into materials and experiments with fabrication processes. Such an approach is informed by his years of design training in the USA and then at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he received a Master in Contextual Design in 2015. Like specimens unearthed from uncharted domains, Yang’s works brings us closer to the edges of our human condition, and even into the unknown.
