Ziming Wang uses art and design as the probe to discuss and testify relationships between humans, objects, technologies, and futures. His work accepts critical issues as the playground and experimentalizes them by pushing these conditions to an extreme level.
Ziming coalesces a variety of media to establish communications between himself and the audiences. Most of his work could be defined as a designed experience. Texts, images, audio, objects, and other media were used to immerse the audiences in scenarios he created. His works are intentionally designed to feel absurd, hilarious, and sometimes creepy, in order to dispel the strangeness of discussing our possible futures.
His work was exhibited in the Wanted Design during New York Design Week 2021 and SAIC’s annual journal. He holds a bachelor’s degree in engineering and is currently a master’s student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2022).
