He is now graduated from Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam with a Master's degree in Lens-based media. He works with digital art on an abstract representation of body movement.

Unframed (2021) - Medium: Experimental Film, Digital motion graphic Size: 5760:1080px 7mins20sec “Chapter 1: Unframed 离" [ 6’23”(loop) color, sound, video installation] This is the first chapter of the project called 离, unframed, 合 framed, 人间 In dimension). The narrative is based on a virtual performance telling that in a certain frequency, each part of the body forms its own awareness. They see their physicality as a shield, trying to de-construct it. Chapter one mainly uses images to experiment with two hypotheses. One: Assuming that the head is the carrier of consciousness, facial expressions, and body are the tools for transmitting information, then when they lose their integrity, all expressions become invalid. Two: If all body language and communication through linguistics is invalid, is there another medium that can communicate in human consciousness? Is it a frequency?

A period of desperation - Medium: Experimental Film, video Installation Size:1920:1080px 3mins06sec Link:https://muxingyechen.com/A-period-of-desperation About Work: “A period of desperation” is audio-visual installation that I tried to use digital graphics researching on: the presence of the “body” has been constantly controlled and manipulated by the “time” and “space”, constructing a question of whether the existence of “body” merely presented as a function that only works for a bigger system (society, human culture, industry, and so forth); How could I find myself in cyberspace, where all sensory information and communications have been transformed into sophisticated networks.
