Iris Chun-Tzu Chang 張 君 慈, born in 1993 in Taiwan, is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher currently based in London.
Like sound as clay, Iris crafts her work through drawing, poetry, installation, field recording and improvised performance. Exploring embodied perception at the thresholds between the tangible/intangible, audible/inaudible, conscious/subconscious, her research interweaves art and science focusing on the self-propagation of memory and the co-existence between humans and non-humans. In her art practices she seeks to grasp the fragility of sonic memory as a self-therapeutic process through which tension and identity is formed, de-formed and re-formed.
Her works have been exhibited and performed at home and abroad, including Hundred Years Gallery (UK), IKLECTIK (UK), LCC Typo Gallery (UK), Resonance FM (UK), Huashan Creative Park (TW), NCKU C-Hub (TW), Meiji Jingu Gaien (JP), Hiroshige Gallery (JP) and Israeli Center for Digital Art (IL). She has been awarded Grand Prize in Taipei Soundscape Program’s music competition in 2017, her ambient music work 'Roaming Traveler' is permanently installed in Songshan Airport Station. In 2019, 'Roaming Traveler' is included in digital compilation album 'Taipei-Sound of Silence’.
作品曾於國內外各地展出發表，包括倫敦Hundred Years Gallery、IKLECTIK、Resonance FM、東京Tokyo Designers’ Week、臺北華山文創園區、臺南C-HUB創意基地、以色列數位藝術中心等。2017年獲得捷運站體環境音樂徵選首獎，作品漫遊旅人(Roaming Traveler) 目前常設於臺北捷運松山機場站，同年亦發行站體環境音樂合輯－臺北的寂靜之聲(Taipei-Sound of Silence)。
