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.

曾靜妍是一位站在設計,計算機科學和藝術交匯點的設計師。她在本科課程中進行多方面的學習,涵蓋了體驗設計、產品設計、平面設計、創意多媒體、計算機科學、藝術和藝術史。曾靜妍經歷予廣闊的學習領域和多方面的實踐,使她更深入地了解人,社會和行業。她時常為現有問題思考和尋找更好解決方案,更時常質疑我們現有的架構和規則所構建出的常態。

Creature

2017

Digital media installation programmed with Arduino and Touchdesigner.

Size variable

With its title “Creature”, the audience can easily associate with two living creatures who are talking to each other in their own language system of light and sound. Interfering with their original behaviour pattern could lead to their abnormal behaviours. The human audience, may comprehend their frequent blinks and high-tone noise as breathing rapidly and screaming or interpret that as a sign of warning and threat. Bending down to get closer to these creatures, the audience seems to be lowering themselves to a smaller and weaker species.

80 × 80 × 80 cm

As a nurturer, we feed the creature with steady and healthy energy. When a heat beat happened, the light and sound will indicate if the energy is too high or too low. If it is too high, it will generate a colder colour and a low tone of sound to calm you down, vice versa.
