About      ︎  

Nolan Xuanyang Huang graduated from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong.

After pursuing his double master degree in digital art and media culture, he worked as a research assistant and technical instructor in Harvestworks Digital Media Centre, New York.

With his academic background in media theory and art history, he involves theoretical concepts into creative practice, in order to reflect on philosophical or cultural approach in production. Ranging from computer graphics, photography, media installation and multimedia performance, his research-oriented practices explore the new artistic approach of time-based media and the hybrid forms of cinematic art. Huang’s works have been showcased and exhibit in New York, Zurich, London, Hong Kong, and other countries and regions. 

Huang is living in Shanghai and work as a lecturer at Roy Ascott Technoetic Art, Shanghai Institude of Visual Art.
