Zhao Zhou works with interactive installations and interventions to survey how different sensorial hierarchies can impact commute and shape urban participation. He works primarily with immaterial mediums like air and uses speculative design as a vehicle to investigate the relationship between standardisation and the human body. Zhao likes to challenge traditional notions within urban design and evokes alternative interpretations in experience and behaviour. His works take place in standardised spaces that are under-utilised. Using a cold industrial design language, his work inhabits standardised spaces, appearing static yet alive, inviting inattentive passersby to engage their other senses. Recent themes in his practice include ableism, body, architecture, sensorial hierarchies and immaterial materials.
