- Wanrong Zheng was born in China and is a third-year graduate in VPA of Syracuse University. She was obsessed with seeking a more free, unfettered life. After studying art abroad and experiencing different cultures, she tends to combine them. A Buddhist book in her sophomore year changed her view of the world. The death of her father in her second year of graduate school reinforced her desire for religious freedom.
- Her videos mostly use simple lines and the sound is mostly related to Buddhism. But it is not limited to this. Freedom, liberation, and death are universal topics. She seeks a balance between Chinese and Western cultures and between death and relief. She uses Buddhist elements as the theme of her works, not only as a record of self-seeking but also to convey a new Oriental way of thinking.
