Albert Cheng-Syun Tang er designer og spesialiserer seg innen visuell kommunikasjon. Han utforsker design og dets mulighet til å være en praksis fokusert på kritisk refleksjon. Tang ble uteksaminert fra National Yunlin University of Science and Technology i Taiwan med en BD grad i visuell kommunikasjon. Han fullførte sin masteroppgave 'Extraordinary in Ordinary' ved institutt for design, og disputerte som stipendiat ved Institutt for design i 2018 med forskningsprosjektet «Reflective Roaming — Design, ubiquitous fantasy, everyday reality ”.

In my artistic research I try to look into the time in which we are living, where technology in particular has been permeating every aspect of our everyday lives ranging from the connectedness between physical and virtual interactions, to our imaginations of individual identities, economic and social developments.

If design is the power to shape the so-called “future”, then who's future and what kind of future are going to be shaped? By whom and what? How can design raise peoples' awareness of being beyond the roles of “consumers” in the ever-evolving, computerized capitalist mode of living? My work seeks ways of converting design into alternative means to ask critical questions and to reflect upon the complicated yet uncertain relationships between human, technology and everyday life.
