Kynan Tan is an artist interested in digital systems, computation, perception and our varied relations to technologies. His works investigate the materialities, networks, relationality and control of digital systems, exploring these areas through multisensory artworks. These works engage with code and data, taking form as multi-screen audiovisual performances and installations, computer-generated simulations, and electronic sound.
Kynan completed a Bachelor of Music (Honours) majoring in composition and music technology at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and is currently a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design. Kynan’s installations and performances have been shown across Australia and overseas, including in Primavera (2017) at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, the Longli Media Art Festival in Guizhou, and Test Tone in Tokyo. Kynan has also worked extensively with collaborative projects in sound, contemporary dance, experimental theatre and interactive media, including Te` with Andrew Brooks, microLandscapes with Emma Fishwick (Next Wave Festival, Melbourne, 2016), and Assemblies for One Body with Rhiannon Newton (Metro Arts, Brisbane, 2015).
