张瑞麒


He is a multimedia artist and educator based in Richmond Virginia. His practice and research press on sensitivity to digital technology when engaged in issues of online identity, media discourse, Internet culture, and critical surroundings. His initial awareness of digital power was formed by and linked through video art, which prompted his further exploration of ideology and cross-cultural experiences in 3D software, moving images, and video installations.

He employed a meandering narration approach to redirect his focus to the potential of reconfiguring autonomy, confrontation, and imagination. Through the organization of various irrelevant materials (3D objects, quotes, found images, theories, and scattered factors) in random juxtapositions, a hybrid stimulus is generated for snap meditation. His idea/method emulates the platform-based algorithmic mechanism, cultivating a non-human-centered perspective to reexamine the locus of our language.

The Graceful Site
work in progress, 2024

The Graceful Site is a simulated video work depicting a post-apocalyptic landscape, where chaos reigns, and people hide, yet the economic system continues to function. The site serves as a new field for experimenting with anarchistic economic models, relying on excess heat from cryptocurrency mining and API access to Oracle networks to maintain stable operations.
