Daniel Shieh is an artist from Taiwan. He creates interactive installations that encourage participants to view each other from a different perspective. The installations usually involve two or more participants to activate. Once activated, they isolate parts of the participants’ bodies, such as the gaze or breath. Participants then present themselves to each other in a mediated manner, such as reflecting one’s gaze through mirrors or delivering one’s breath via an inflatable device.
His installations have been commissioned by Art in Odd Places, Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, University City Municipal Commission on Arts & Letters, and Harvard Office for the Arts. He has been invited as an artist in residence to the School of Visual Arts, Cité Internationale des Arts,
Franconia Sculpture Park, Spruce Arts, Laboratory Spokane, the Studios at MASS MoCA, Wave Pool Gallery, Monson Arts, and Jamestown Art Center.
