Arthur Huang

Arthur Huang

Born: 1972

Hometown: Oakland, California

Based in: Tokyo

Arthur Huang lives and works in Tokyo, Japan as an artist and researched. He is interested in everyday memories which he has been exploring in his studio practice since 2001. He moved to Tokyo in 2009 to work as a molecular biologist at the RIKEN Center for Brain Science studying memory and learning in mice. He is also the director of the Tokyo-based artist collective Art Byte Critique.

Arthur Huang records various mundane everyday activities and explores the changes that occur in his memory of those activities. His studio practice is based within the spectrum of science and art with an interest in exploring the area where the two fields commingle. He has been working on three ongoing projects in recent years dealing with various aspects of everyday life.

“Memory Walks Project” (since 2012) This project was inspired by the discovery and ongoing research in neuroscience on place cells which are part of the spatial memory circuitry. Since 2012, he has been keeping track of his departure points for all his daily walks. Drawing upon his episodic memory at a later date, he uses this information to create memory maps on various medium including eggshells, styrofoam balls, and acrylic discs

“Daily Drawings Project” (since 2015) He has been making drawings during his commute on trains, subways, and buses almost everyday. The drawings are not preconceived and made intuitively during his commute. These works are the product and record of influences from his procedural and sensory memories.

“Memories’ Remnants Collage Project” (since 2018) With this most recent project, Arthur Huang makes collages from paper and other products such as envelopes, wrappers, and flyers before they make their way to recycling or the trash. These collages are created everyday and combine aspects of explicit and implicit memories to record his everyday activities.

In his studio practice, he has been asking these questions and more about the projects he pursues - “What do these works mean?”, “What are the influences in making these works?” and “Why did I make these works?” There are no clear answers or even clear paths to finding answers, but through the exploration, contemplation, and integration of these seemingly disparate projects, he hopes to push the evolution of his studio practice in new and unexpected directions.
