[ʎaŋˈkeen], yan-kin *
artist, music producer and web developer, currently based in New York. Born in Santiago de Chile, his work explores the relations between user culture, techno animism, conspiracy theories and the construction of latin-american imaginaries and its tensions between modernization and tradition. These themes appear and evolve through a network of pieces whose formats range from video, printed media, real time computer simulations, drawings, found objects, sculpture and music. A common characteristic that unifies these works is the utilization of the digital medium as a flexible tool for production, distribution and as a symbolic apparatus whose metaphors and observations serve as a reflection about its own technical and economical implications in an apparent seamlessly data-fed world.
