"Untitled" is an immersive experience that explores the delicate lines between reality/imagination, beauty/danger, and peace/disruption. It is an abstraction of the impending climate crises that might happen within the century. It asks only a moment of silence and reflection as you tread between these lines.
Ong Kian Peng is a media artist based in Singapore. His practice investigates the effects of climate change and our relationship with nature. Working at the intersection of art, technology and the environment, Ong creates immersive and reflective environments that offer alternate visions and imaginations of our relationship with nature.
Ong's works have been exhibited in art spaces such as the Tainan Museum of Fine Art, Singapore Art Museum, Arebyte Gallery London, ICA London, Total Museum Seoul, and ICA Singapore. He has presented works in festivals and art fairs like the Singapore M1 Fringe Festival, International Computer Music Conference, Siggraph Art Gallery, FILE Festival Brazil, Asian Students and Young Artists Festival in South Korea, Japan Media Arts Festival, Singapore Open Media Art Festival, and Yeosu International Art Fair. Ong was awarded the President's Young Talent Grand Prize in 2015.
He graduated from UCLA with an MFA in Design Media Art. He is currently an adjunct lecturer at Lasalle College of the Arts, specializing in media and creative technologies. Since 2017, he runs Supernormal, an independent art space focusing on emerging and experimental art practice.
