single channel, sound, colour,5'09", 2011


Cyber Native 2011 is a re-edited single channel version of Cyber-Ring which is artist’s former work as the first series of Cyclorama Digital Art Creation Series exhibited in NTMOFA (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts) in 2008-2009. There are diversified imaginations on cyber virtual identities and cyber spatial fields, including her Cyberbeings Series which consists of images of desexualized figures, of a combination of animals, and of implying the Seven Deadly Sins. In addition, in Cyber Native Series a little girl is represented in the “Aboriginal-like” images through the artist’s self-portraiture. Ambling around in the cyberspace, the little girl, as if a giant Godzilla, a Flâneur wanders alone in the cyber world. Growing rapidly, the Internet technology has not only affected global lifestyles, but also developed a cyber popular culture, which circulates faster and faster. Netizens invent a distinctive language to communicate and develop a unique way to interactive among one another, and therefore they have transcended the boundaries of nation, race, gender, age, and so on. The postcolonial phenomenon of globalized cyber culture has already permeated through our daily lives and Cultural identities.

1978, born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Laza WU Tzu-Ning is a creator who plays variable roles in the art world and also keeps changing her styles in real life. We can see variety and diversity of Laza’s works as compounds of her multiple styles of creations. Mixed media installation works with theatrical and literary qualities of material “concrete poetry” are created in the early years, and then she turns to create the new media works as combinations of video projections, interactive performances, and other different forms of elements. She is good at achieving the “mise-en-scène” between the display of works, the audiences, and sometimes the artist herself. She brings up the questions of life and doubts of society rules conceptually through her artworks.
