Hung Lu Chan is a designer and researcher based in the Netherland and Taiwan. He is interested in exploring imaginary figures and narratives across eastern and western cultures, such as aliens, ghosts, mermaids, zombies, and their political impacts on society, technology, and the future. Since these collective imaginations are both a metaphor for the dynamics of interpreting the relationship between the unknown and the self, but also a mirror for reflecting our inner fears and hopes for the present and future, his practice is to develop collaborative imagination through communication between humans and their inner imaginary figures. With adequate experience in industrial and interactive design, he develops unique tools and experiences through which bridge the unconscious and conscious in order to question the notion of these imaginations. Through this intra-collaborative imagination developing, his goal is to challenge the stereotypes, stigmas, and borders we project onto others, societies and worlds.
