Carla Chan is contemporary artist based in Berlin and Hong Kong, where she obtained her bachelor degree in Media Arts from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. She works with a variety of media, such as video, installation, photography and interactive media. Much like the never-ending development of new technology, Chan considers media art as a medium with infinite possibilities for artistic expressions. Minimal in style and form, Chan’s works often toy with the blurred boundaries between reality and illusion, figure and abstraction. Her recent practice focuses on the ambiguity in nature. Bridging natural transformation and unpredictable computer algorithms, her works are consolidated with a cohesive dynamic between form, means and content. She was selected to participate European Mobile dome Lab [E/M/D/L], a Europe Union funded project which toured six different countries including Montréal (CA), Athens (GR), Plymouth (GB), Dresden (GE), Vienna (AT) and Lima (Peru). The project focuses on exploring virtual reality and immersive media experience. Her works have been showcased extensively in different International exhitbtions. Including 22nd International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), Hek (Haus der elektronischen Künste Basel)(CH), shortlisted in Discovery LOOP Barcelona video Art Award, 2016 and Hong Kong Contemporary Art Awards 2012 (HK).
Black Moves is a spatial drama and a virtual landscape that simulates the forming and de-forming of an amorphous black mass, an evocative sensorial unfolding that traverses between the boundaries of the physical and the psychological.
