Current  Past  Campus Art

Campus Art Museum

The campus art museum blueprint is centered on the NTNU Art Museum. It harnesses the energy of campus art and welcomes visitors and residents to admire the public art exhibited at the museum and across the campus. Plans are in place to implement artistic and cultural promotions and community service on the basis of the concept of an ecological museum. Our museum emphasizes not only art but also engagement with the natural environment and scenery of the community. Therefore, NTNU Museum launched the In the Name of Trees: A Community/Art Project in 2020 to link shops in nearby lanes and alleys and to facilitate art residencies, thereby building community sentiment through the power of art.


NTNU Museum is currently launching a public art project that features Chang Yung-Ta’s Bragi, which evokes the essence of poetry. Inspired by the skaldic god of poetry in Norse mythology, this piece is based on our collections of works and employs programming to deconstruct collection images into basic elements that are then reconstructed into a poem on the basis of images and sounds. The installation is presented through a series of activities that are open to students and the general public.

Echoing the contemporary expression of art museums in the new century, “Bragi” builds a three-dimensional relationship in space, employing technology and a minimal form – a mirrored cube, data, and sound. The work creates a soundscape exclusive to the National Taiwan Normal University Art Museum by analyzing the data of the museum’s collection with a computer algorithm, expressed as an audiovisual installation with visual, auditory and spatial elements. Thus, visitors may experience a new connection between themselves and the work through multiple senses, exploring the details of architecture, environment and space.

Artist: Chang Yung-Ta

Chang’s creations focus on the physical phenomena (including sounds) in our lives that are subtle and often overlooked, and they consider the relationships among people, technology, and the environment through experiments and research involving sounds, materials, science, and data. Chang wishes to encourage the contemporary individual, who lives in a highly visual environment, to use other senses to experience and explore the world. Chang’s art is presented in various forms such as audiovisual works, experimental sounds, sound installations, and live performances, which have been exhibited at solo exhibitions, group exhibitions, and art festivals in museums across Asia, Europe, North America, and South America, such as the Centre Pompidou-Metz (2021), the Taipei Biennial (2020), the National Taichung Theater (2019), ARTEFACT: Chernobyl 33 (2019), Digital Art Festival Taipei (2017), City Sonic: International Sound Art(s) Festival (2015), the Hong Kong Arts Centre (2013), and the 01SJ Biennial (2010).
