Yalan Wen is an artist based in New York City who works on computational images, new media installations and motion graphics. Born and raised in Taiwan, she developed her curiosity about art and science by observing nature. Her work explores the subtle events that happen beyond the surface, finding the balance between simplicity and subtle philosophical interpretations. Graphic design is the foundation of her visual language, which she continued to develop in the MFA Computer Arts program at the School of Visual Arts. Her most recent interactive installations incorporate programming, experimental music composition, visual graphics and physical computing.
