Wong is interested in exploring visual patterns, motions, and sound textures, as well as presenting works in the form of computational kinetic sculptures. Wong actively works as a collaborating artist, multimedia designer, mechanical engineer/designer, and art researcher. 黃智銓 1987 年出生於香港。他關注跨界模擬信號與數位表現法,以日常經驗及感知刺激之間的微妙關係作 為創作元素。 黃智銓熱衷於探索視覺模式丶運動、聲音質感,以及電腦動力學裝置。黃氏以多媒體設計師、機械工程師 /設計師和藝術研究員的身份與其他媒體藝術家、聲音藝術家及戲劇演員等積極合作。
