Tian Mu


Tian Mu’s practice spans paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations, with advanced

technological methods of production such as 3D rendering/scanning, biological and commodity

forms. He probes the limits of the human body and the material world to interrogate the unforeseen

vulnerabilities brought on by technology. His work examines the embodiment of human projection

and spiritual characteristics from subculture and myth. Questioning how person-to-machine

exchanges reflect the contemporary human condition. Perhaps humankind is replaced by animals,

and technological animism is taken on the mystical and the superstitious. and these cycles of

creation, extinction, rebuild guides the future construction and production
