/// biography

Kynan Tan is an artist interested in networks, data, relationality and digital systems of control, exploring these areas through digitally-derived artworks. These works engage with digital aesthetics, code and data, taking form as multi-channel audio-visual performances and installations, sculptures, sound, and 3D simulations of data processes and materials. These works collectively examine the affectivity and relationality of digital systems as they operate across (non)sensibility.

Kynan’s installation works have been exhibited at Beijing Media Arts Beinnale, Central Academy of Fine Arts (Beijing, China), Primavera 2017, Museum of Contemporary Arts, Australia, Longli Media Art Festival (Guizhou, China), MOCA (Taipei, Taiwan), NH7 Festival (Pune, India), Firstdraft, Fremantle Arts Centre (Perth) and the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. He has been the recipient of a DCA Young People and the Arts Fellowship, Australia Council Artstart grant, and the JUMP Mentorship Program, studying with audio-visual artist Robin Fox. Kynan has performed in Japan, Germany, New Zealand and throughout Australia, including events such as Test Tone (Tokyo), Channels Video Art Festival (Melbourne) and the NOW now Festival. Kynan recently completed his PhD studies at the University of New South Wales Art & Design.
