YIU Sheung-Kan 姚尚勤

Sheung Yiu is a Hong Kong-born, image-centred artist and video essayist, based in Helsinki, Finland. His artwork explores the act of seeing through algorithmic image systems and sense-making through networks of images. He examines photography through the lens of new media, scales, and network thinking; When he is not researching algorithmic image-making, he uses video essays as a medium to seek redemptive social justice and speculate on possible future through his alter-reality screenplay. His work involves photography, videos, photo objects, exhibition installations, and bookmaking.
