Chan Wan Kyn (b. 1994, Singapore) graduated with a Bachelor and Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 2019 and 2021 respectively from Purdue University, and was the pioneer class of School Of The Arts, Singapore (SOTA). He has actively pursued engagements at the interface of art and engineering. Wan Kyn has had the opportunity to showcase his works in numerous local and international exhibitions such as iLight Marina Bay 2012 and Singapore Art Museum: 8Q, as well as being awarded two grants to create interactive installations for the upcoming Purdue University Boiler Gold Rush Orientation, IN USA.
Chan Wan Kyn's works manifest themselves in a diverse range of mediums from physical interactive experiences to digitally generated works. In the latest exploration, Path Project (2nd link) captures lux, light intensity, readings coupled with GPS data of familiar pathways that he has travelled. Often, these digital renders capture oft-traveled routes to and from places around Wan Kyn's university campus, his second home for the past 6 years, after sunset. These renders illuminate the passage of time and space through light, allowing audiences an abstract yet relatable experience to reimagine this journey, mapping and visualizing data in a myriad of ways.
