ZENG Jing Yan Kay

Zeng Jing Yan is a designer standing on the intersection of design, computer science and art unswervingly. My undergraduate studies and practices covered experience design, product design, graphic design, creative media, computer science, art and art history. It is this wide span of my studies and practices that enables me to go deeper in understanding people, society and industry. Not only am I interested in finding better solutions for existing problems but also questioning the commonly accepted normality and regularity that construct our world.

If alien life was around, would we be able to even sense it? Or will it be necessary to extend our sensory apparatus to include other perceptions as extraterrestrial life might come in forms very different to us?

PETI – short for Perception of Extraterrestrial Intelligence – is a programme aiming to develop humankind’s ability by means based on the sensory substitution theory, and thus to enhance the chances for man to perceive the possible presence of extraterrestrial life by sensing electromagnetic waves. PETI allows the visitor to experience and train their new EM skills.

如果外星生命就在我們附近,我們是否能夠感受到它?或者,是否有必要拓寬我們的感知範圍,因為外星生命可能以與我們截然不同的形式出現?

「感知地外文明計劃」,以感官替代理論,旨在培養人類感知電磁波的能力。希望通過不懈的研究和實驗,使人類能夠更進一步發現外星生命。
