Engineering of Volcano Detonating
Engineering of Volcano Detonating is an artist group formed by Liang Ting-Yu, Hsu Po-Yen, Lu Chun-Cha, and Lu Guan-Hong in 2016. Following a series of smoke rising projects in Yangmingshan National Park, the group began artistic exploration of the relationship between city and volcano in 2017. Using media images of volcanoes from throughout the 2010s, they sought to investigate the demonization of volcanoes by the mass media and the othering of nature by the city.
From 2018 to 2019, the group undertook the project Flaming Mountains, a concatenation of corporeal intervention and field surveys in volcanic craters. With the relationships between volcanoes, cities, and humans being at the core of their work, they began to develop the idea of “neg-geography” in 2019 and have put it into the practice of their geo-art ever since.
