Wei-Ting Ma

is a Taiwanese artist and architectural designer based in London, whose works focus on social engagement and site-specific performance. By actively participating in the local scene and engaging with communities, she aims to give voice to objects and foster connections between human and non-human agencies. This is achieved through artistic animation film, live performance, and installation in situ using hands-on methodologies.

Inspired by Donna Haraway's concept of 'kinship', Wei-Ting infuses found objects with vitality. These objects engage storytelling and site-specific intervention to cultivate empathy and raise environmental awareness. Furthermore, her works critique the exploitation of nature and human labour by capitalist corporations while also challenging conventional notions of physicality and aesthetics.
