How to Be Satiated in the Dark-2

The two images are digital renders from my MFA thesis project How to Be Satiated in the Dark. It is a project about “ghost town”, which is a geographical phenomenon where houses and apartments within a developmental zone are being built in greater numbers than demanded.
Qirou Yang is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist who originally came from southern China. She received her BFA at OCAD University and MFA in Documentary Media at Ryerson University. Her art practices, which are intertwined between reality and fiction, are mostly driven by tracing her personal memory and self-perception.
She utilizes text, photography, moving images and installation to explore the ontology of the medium. She believes that the nature of every medium ought not to be dull and set in stone, but to be sculptable and flexible.
She has participated in Vector Festival, Video Fever, UAAC Conference, Digital Art Residency COLLAB-19 in 2020, and Residency Videopoem at the gallery Vidéographe in Montreal in 2021. She is currently a part-time professor at the Faculty of Media & Creative Arts at Humber College.
