Jiaman is an aspiring interactive designer and artist, based in Singapore. She is currently pursuing a bachelor in Interactive Media at the School of Art, Design & Media in NTU.
With a background in Visual communications, majoring in Advertising, she believes in combining technology and graphic design to create immersive and multi-sensory works for her audiences. Bringing out human stories remains as the main purpose of her works and she strives to create meaningful works that touches on social issues and human relationships with each other and their environment.
She is constantly developing her design style which is deeply influenced by traditional Asian art. Recently back from an exchange in Europe, she is currently obsessed in the chaotic, shifting density of asian cityscapes and the how human behaviour have been affected and evolves through the times.

A visual interplay of light and darkness. YIN & YANG. A love story.
Yin & Yang is a visual inter-play on the natural balance of opposite energies. Light and darkness, day and night, the sun and the moon, man and woman. It explores how contrary forces may actually be complementary and give rise to each other as they interconnect.
Despite being aware of the destructive effects of the high consumption of our sometimes unnecessary waste that is rapidly diminishing the natural environment, we are often de-sensitized to the magnitude of the issue.
Plastic Gyre aims to ultimately reveal this reality and encourage viewers to reflect on their actions and their impact on the environment. The installation integrates data visualisation and interactivity in an attempt to portray these long lasting effects of our “throwaway society”.
As the structure captures the beautiful world that we perceive to be living in, viewers are then caught unaware of the sudden hit of reality that is portrayed from the interaction.
Semblance is a performance piece. This outdoor sculpture joins mechanical and natural forces together that are essential in our tech driven evolution. Studio Drift further explores the highly evolved natural mechanism called ‘nyctinasty’ in Semblance; a light sculpture that unfolds and retreats in a fascinating choreography.
