Ya-Yu Tseng (b.1995, Taiwan) is an independent designer and researcher whose main interests include online curatorial practice, software aesthetics, web-based artistic projects and DIY cultures in the digital communities. She has diverse working experiences in the fields of technology review, business consulting and digital product design.
Ya-Yu holds a BA degree in Chinese Literature from National Taiwan University and currently she is studying at Aalto University’s MA programme Visual Culture, Curating and Contemporary Art.
The starting point of my practice is to think about how abstract concepts are displayed and grew within the digital tools (softwares, user interfaces, online platforms, etc). I observe the public’s behaviours and attitudes toward digital objects, and seek to create an alternative viewpoint by playing with web-based techniques and visual narration. I also value the art that could radicalize the ordinary business scenes and challenge the corporate hegemony. The poetry of tools is what I always consider when working with digital mediums.
As an art practitioner, I would like to be seen as a service provider rather than an author or owner. Online curatorial practice is my current focus. I hope to expand people’s preconceived experiences with digital objects, and to advocate for a more inclusive, more intuitive, and more emotionally connected online space.
