LING TAN, artistic participatory methodologies through social engagement, performance & politics, Daniela Silva, δημοσίευση στο CLOT Magazine [18/3/2023]Marilena Pateraki
Ling Tan is a contemporary artist whose work explores the intersection of technology, ecology, and human behaviour. She is known for her innovative and thought-provoking projects that challenge our understanding of the world and spark discussions about important social and environmental issues. In recent years, Ling has continued to push the boundaries of her art, exploring new themes and creating visually stunning and intellectually stimulating works.
In her most recent work, Ling Lin examines the impact of the digital age on our relationship with the natural world. Using video, sound, and sculpture, she creates immersive experiences that invite the viewer to engage deeply and personally. In addition to her multimedia installations, Ling Tan has created several large-scale installations that incorporate elements of interactivity and are meant to be experienced in public spaces, such as parks, plazas, and other public gathering places.
Low Carbon Chinatown, one of her most notable projects, is an interactive installation that combines food, data science, and community participation to explore different ways to respond to the climate crisis. The project is centred around a pop-up structure created using recycled materials and designed to be energy-efficient and sustainable. The structure is equipped with sensors and data analytics tools that allow visitors to monitor the structure’s energy consumption and learn about different ways to reduce its carbon footprint. In addition to this, the structure also serves as a community kitchen, where visitors can participate in cooking workshops and learn about sustainable food practices.
Through food and community activities, Low Carbon Chinatown encourages people to come together and share ideas about sustainability and environmental stewardship. Visitors can participate in workshops and discussions that explore different ways to reduce their carbon footprint and learn about the impact of their actions on the environment. On the other hand, the community kitchen serves as a hub for cooking workshops and discussions about the role of food in addressing the climate crisis. Visitors learn the importance of reducing food waste, sourcing food locally, and using sustainable food practices to reduce their carbon footprint.
Ling’s work has a powerful impact. She creates a space for discussion and reflection, invites the public to engage with social and environmental issues, and encourages us to think about the impact of technology on the world around us.
