Wen Shi is an experience designer and multimedia artist based in London and Hangzhou.
With a background in industrial design and computer graphic design, Wen utilizes design thinking theory to explore new research directions, integrating various technologies and methodologies to investigate novel phenomena at the intersection of society, humanities, and technology. This approach brings a unique perspective to her art. Through experimentation and research on new technologies, Wen combines computer art with digital media art, exploring the convergence of game design, VR, and installation art.
As a product and experience designer, she has been involved in various projects, including the design of the Serbia China-Europe Rail Traffic, user experience design for gaming apps, and interactive design for regional transportation software, among others.
As a multimedia artist, the core of Wen's creative process lies in her interaction with the precarity of postmodern society. Living in a rapidly changing society, she experiences the impact of precarity, which generates multifaceted ideas and reflections. Her inspiration stems from observing and empathizing with social phenomena, projecting her own state into society, and receiving reflections from society. She explores the boundaries between collectivism and individualism, seeks ways to enhance perception, and aims to establish new connections with the world.
Wen aims to convey her thoughts through various forms of artistic expression, hoping to create art that resonates with a broader audience. Through her works, she engages in a dialogue with the audience, exploring the pursuit of life amidst the precarity of society.
