Chi-yung Wong is a media artist from Hong Kong, born in 1981, whose work concentrates on the art of light. It is a mixture of technology, popular culture and theatrical techniques. His works focus on the relationship between light and people and how this relationship can be explored in both visual and theatrical arts. In his pieces, he applies theatrical lighting techniques to dictate rhythm, intensity and color. It is the manipulation of these factors that induces visitors to re-perceive surrounding spaces through the intervention of light.
