Adam Hsieh (pronouns: he/him) is a transdisciplinary digital artist.
Adam's art practice emerges from an ongoing inquiry into the dynamic tension between places and place-makers in physical and virtual spheres, guided by his intimate experience as a queer Chinese immigrant. He seeks to unpack the complexity and fluidity of ecological and social phenomena by manipulating systems of light, sound, motion graphics and code in a series of multi-sensory artistic interventions. Examining the blurred boundary between the environment and its inhabitants through human-computer interaction, he speculates alternative approaches to making sense of human and non-human actors' shifting agency within a relational network of uncertainty and ambiguity.
Most recently in 2020, his 35mm film/digital video project 'Yours, the World's', an interrogation of the ownership of sexuality in erotic culture, was selected by Ars Electronica Festival in Austria, Patchlab Festival in Poland and Athens Digital Arts Festival in Greece. In 2019, he completed 'I Hear You (But Do You Hear Me?)', a commissioned interactive installation for Vivid Sydney to address inequality in the digital era.
After earning a bachelor's degree in architecture at the South China University of Technology, Adam embarked on a career in contemporary art at CMoDA Beijing, China's very first digital art museum, in 2011. The following year, he joined Liu Dao Art Collective in Shanghai and produced a series of interactive LED art with international artists and tech geeks to capture the contrasting scenes from old and new China.
Currently, he is a PhD candidate in creative arts at the University of Tasmania and continues to explore the world with his weird sense of humour.

Recognising the cultural and creative connection between First Peoples and the continent, Adam is privileged to create works of art upon the unceded land of muwinina people, between kunanyi and timtumili minanya. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
