\n

Chen g has been interested in science and engineering since she was little. Ever y summer break during junior high school she would visit and help out at he r father’s factory in Taiwan. Hanging out at the factory is one of her fond est childhood memories. Cheng found that she couldn’t stop watching and try ing to figure out how the giant mechanical factory devices worked. Every pa rt of each machine connected to another massive machine\, moving and workin g smoothly together\, just like a human body.

\n

 

\n

While study ing the human form in school\, Cheng came see it as an incredible machine. Similar to the wonder that her father’s machines made her feel as a child\, the body came to fascinate her. Specific parts of the human form such as o rgans\, the brain\, and the way bodies perceive the world around them becam e the focus of her work.

\n

 

\n

In Cheng’s world\, the brain is a cognitive camera\, and each blink of the eye captures a fragment of a mem ory. Old books carry with them a history of not only the information within them but also the trajectory of where the book has been. By gluing each pa ge of a book together in order to form a carvable foundation for her sculpt ures\, Cheng has secured the memories collected in the history of the book. Similarly\, Cheng’s paintings of car engines are organic representations o f blood vessels\, fluids and movements\, blurring the line between man and machine.
