Hongjie Yang

Hongjie Yang’s design practice embodies the concept of metamorphosis. His work explores plausible scenarios and their influences on transforming our preconceived perceptions. In his practice, Yang searches for new aesthetics through in-depth research in emerging areas of technology and culture. Across all lines of inquiry, he rigorously interrogates and pulls apart the building blocks of materiality. Yang's recent metal works bring out a rich narrative of the material possibilities across the surface of a single object. These works are part of an ongoing exploration of metal as a landscape creating material. The relationship between humanity and technology is so old now, our influence on the Earth so all pervasive, that these works look at breaking down the distinction; works of the Anthropocene epoch. Yang's objects overlap between sculpture and design, always inviting viewers to see themselves within the gradual unfolding landscape of metal - a world of rough and smooth beauty.

Yang studied in USA and the Netherlands. He received his masters in Contextual Design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015. He currently operates a studio under his own name in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
