BIOGRAPHY

Taien Ng-Chan is a writer and media artist whose work takes on hybrid forms of experimental cinema and soundscape, poetry, and processes of mapping. Her research explores locative media art, creative practices of everyday life and daily travel, “object-oriented storytelling,” place-based narrative and Futurist imaginings. In addition to her scholarly work in such publications as Intermediality, Wi: Journal of Mobile Media and Humanities, Taien has also published four books and anthologies of creative writing, produced multimedia arts websites, and written for stage, screen, and CBC Radio. She has shown her media works in film festivals and galleries across Canada and internationally, including at the Biennale internationale d’art numérique in Montreal, the International Mobile Innovation Screenings in New Zealand, the Art Gallery of Windsor, and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Taien is one half of the artist-research collective Hamilton Perambulatory Unit (HPU), Chair of the Art and Cartography Commission at the International Cartographers Association, and a founding member of Zineposium, an annual DIY arts and zines fair. In 2019, she won the City of Hamilton Arts Award for Media Arts. More information on her projects can be found at her website: soyfishmedia.com
