Mitchell Chan

Works / Exhibitions / CV / News

Mitchell F. Chan is a new media artist who uses sophisticated electronics to explore notions of presence and absence, movement and stillness. In his latest series of kinetic sculptures, Chan continues his use of the motorized string as a point of departure. In Studies In Movement, Absentia, rapidly spinning coloured elastic strings appear as transparent helixes, volumetric yet intangible. Belying their actual nature by moving faster than the human eye can perceive, the spinning strings exists in a quantum state: a hyperkinetic one-dimensional line in no fixed location, producing an apparently static three-dimensional space. Mitchell has been covered by The Globe and Mail, The National Post, The Toronto Star and Eye Weekly.
