Major project:


This work combines various approaches to making art, including sound-making, Avatar making, VR painting and sculpting, traditional methods of painting, 3D modelling, etc. The work offers a new way of seeing artwork by VR, mainly focusing on what painting could be in the digital realm. The sensation of the infinite and the limited is brought up by the separation of these looping rooms. As a viewer, you become different from your physical appearance and question what it means to be a human.


  • I am interested in how art could be in the future. So, I am digging deep into VR and AI to really understand what they are now, how they will develop and what their relationship with the artist will be. I am also trying to see what will happen when Chan meets Christianity. In the search for wholeness, how will science and religion meet?
