In this demanding yet exhilarating paintings, Sha Xin Wei argues for an method of materiality encouraged by means of non-stop arithmetic and technique philosophy. Investigating the results of such an method of media and topic within the concrete surroundings of deploy- or event-based artwork and know-how, Sha maps a family tree of topological media -- that's, of an articulation of continuing topic that relinquishes a priori gadgets, topics, and egos and but constitutes worth and novelty. Doing so, he explores the ethico-aesthetic effects of topologically developing performative occasions and computational media. Sha's interdisciplinary research is expert by way of thinkers starting from Heraclitus to Alfred North Whitehead to Gilbert Simondon to Alain Badiou to Donna Haraway to Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari.
Sha strains the serious flip from illustration to functionality, mentioning a chain of installation-events predicted and outfitted over the last decade. His research bargains a clean option to conceive and articulate interactive fabrics of recent media, one encouraged through continuity, box, and philosophy of procedure. Sha explores the consequences of this for philosophy and social reports of expertise and technology suitable to the production of analysis and artwork. Weaving jointly philosophy, aesthetics, severe idea, arithmetic, and media experiences, he exhibits how wondering the realm when it comes to continuity and strategy will be educated through computational applied sciences, and what such considering implies for rising artwork and technology.
