Born 1991, Changsha, Hunan. Lives and works in Finland

Huang Siying sees no contradiction between art and algorithms, inspiration and logic. Though she says she often struggles with advanced mathematics and coding, she uses computers in all her works. But she does so to generate new perspectives on the natural world. In Initial Psalm (2013), she uses the application Mandelbulb to translate the levels of vital hormones measured in newborn babies into fractals that she prints on a 3D printer—or, where printing would be too complicated or expensive, sequences into a video animation.
