Chang-Ching “Casper” Su
Chang-Ching “Casper” Su is a political research-based artist. He creates contradictions to draw out the overlooked power dynamics that underlie contemporary life and are rooted in politics. Born from the photographer’s contemplation and curiosity, he works with photography, moving image, languages and found objects. Su underlines the context and raises social, political, and individual questions in his research, manifesting them as time-based media in conceptually layered installations. Instead of harsh criticism and cynicism, Casper favors paradoxical playfulness with humor in his work to draw attention to the failings of the system while offering some relief for our frustrations. Su earned his BA in Political Science from National Taiwan University and MFA degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
