About Edy Fung

Working at the interface between the physical and the digital, British Hong Konger artist Edy Fung seeks to understand how our material world is conditioned through her intermedia art practice. She works with image, video, text, sound, installation, exhibition-making, as well as produces electroacoustic noise music under the name Quantum Foam by sampling and synthesizing her own recordings of real-world sounds. Her practice explores our relationship with technology, seeking more-than-human interpretations and deanthropocentric readings of our current society and environment beyond its spacetime. She is a visiting artist at Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast since 2019. Most recently, she performed in MUTEK ES+AR (2021), RHA Dublin (2021), Culturlann (2020) and exhibited in IMMA (2021), CCA Derry~Londonderry (2021), Somerset House Studios (2020) and MUTEK Montréal (2020).

About Future Ages Will Wonder

Future Ages Will Wonder presents an “alternative museum” of artworks that use science and technology to question our past and offer new ways of understanding who we are and where we belong.

Opening on Thurusday 28 October 2021, the artworks on display bring together traditional mediums such as textiles, sculpture, and photography with virtual reality, computer algorithms and synthetic DNA to reimagine stories about our past, present and future. Through this wide range of materials and art-making, the exhibition refocuses where we place attention and what we value: reimagining stories about our past, present and future. Turning attention to alternative histories, the political and ethical issues found in archaeology, botany, genetics and the use of technology in our daily lives, visitors are invited to behold and ‘wonder’ at the advancement of science and technology.

Exhibiting artists include Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, Yarli Allison, Miku Aoki, Trisha Baga, Breakwater (Youngsook Choi and Taey Iohe), Ai Hasegawa and Boedi Widjaja.
