Jan Chan

Jan Chan, artist with a background in makeup.  MA Fine Art student at Central Saint Martins, London.

Jan’s practice is to examine the relationship between human and technology, questioning the freedom that we have in the current society under the influence of technology.  He plays with a wide range of media, from photography, drawing to sculpture.  Jan’s signature colourful elements can be found in his works.

 

Jan pursues the truth of the ideal world in the digital rainforest. In Plato’s allegory of the cave, the prisoners only face the walls and shadows so that they lose the ability to discern the truth. Jan’s works are contemplated how human response and gaming with the surveillance system in current and future society.
