Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Chung Yu-Ting’s works span multimedia artworks and films, writing and painting. She explores the multi-dimensional realm of imaging and cultural boundaries, drawing inspiration from Buddhist notions, particularly the concept of emptiness, in seeking a transformation in this era. She questions the boundless possibilities inherent in the contemporary sense of emptiness. With a background in Fine Art and an MA in Digital Direction at the Royal College of Art, she has extended her presence in dynamic creative environments across London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
