Chris Shen

Chris Shen formulates his artistic methodology by developing technical features of remote controls or sensors in his own unique ways. Shen takes everyday objects and transforms them into technological and artistic media objects that serve entirely different purposes from their original functions. One example of such work is Infra, an installation of 625 remote controls and video. 625 remote controls that would normally point to TVs become a single TV screen that projects video images and shines LED lights at people. Shen focuses on how technology operates and how humans use those technologies. He also explores their features and functions to reveal them to the audience. His artistic philosophy is summarized in the following statement: “My works are a series of open questions, and it awakens understandings of how everyday technology came to permeate our lives.”
