Ghost Chan

is an artist and a creative technology from a Computer Science and Contemporary Dance backgrounds. He innovates the methods of applying logic and technology to performance and installations and is interested in crossing the performer-spectator spheres. Through studying the involvement of digital interactivity in cultural spaces, he scrutinises the socio-political power of artmaking in democratic societies. 

 

With digital interactive technology, Ghost Chan plays with the power dynamics between the creator, the performers and the audience. His works include Meniscus, I'M NOT SURE ABOUT YOU, BUT I NEED MY PHONE and more. His investigation into algorithmic choreography empowers him as an artist to expand the spectating experience he can provide, in which trigger reflection on the social system that we are in. He is half of the art duo, Ghost and John​, and a co-founder of the creative enterprise, Hidden Keileon CIC
