On September 20, Associate Professor Zheng Da of the School of Fine Arts, Central China Normal University won "The Lumen Prize" in 2017 by his work, the Unfettered Language of Machines. It was the first time Chinese artist had won the prize.


The Lumen Prize, established by Carla Rapoport in Wales, the US in 2011, is operated by a group of experts who specialize in art, media and digital technology. The Lumen Prize Exhibition is held once a year to collect digital art works globally. Those are selected to win will be exhibited at the top venues around the world.


"The Unfettered Language of Machine", created by Zheng Da in 2016, is a large interactive lighting device. The hypercube is 5-meter-sized, consisted of 240 meters customized LED strips that includes 32640 LEDs. When a viewer touches the lighting device, his or her heartbeat can be captured, thereby driving the lighting animation. Through the work, the artist tries to explore the relationship between human and machine. Human's heart rhythm gets visualized by machines while machines alienate as it engulf the signs of human, which, in fact, occurs in every moment of our daily life.
