WANG ZI WON

 

Wang believes that human body is the most important thing for human to be a human being. After a car accident, he realized how precious it is and started to express his belief in humanities. Living in this technological world, he started to apply a mechanics to his artworks which is partially contradiction of life; using CAD software, programming boards and gears. They give life to his figurines which looks alike to human body but in reality they are only a marionette of this technological world.
