Zhang Bixiao (The ElectroPoetics)

Bixiao Zhang (Frankie) is a digital artist and Ph.D. candidate at RMIT University living in Naarm. Her practice-led research, a fluid entity termed “The ElectroPoetics,” proposes a performative approach to digital media and algorithmic architecture driven by the intersections of Chinese Shanshui(mountain-water) Thought, feminist eco-poetics, and electro-dynamism. Her "performative Shan-shui" practice situates dynamic digital substrates for transversal modes of engagement and co-current mattering, an approach that accentuates tacit resonance as primordial modes of care. Bixiao won the 2021 Dean’s Award for her research project; Her latest projects include an artist residency at the Centre for Projection Art (Australia), a research residency at Post Humanist Art Network (San Francisco), and exhibitions at Bunjil Place, Footscray Community Arts, and Blindside Gallery (Australia).
