Ling Tan is an award-winning designer and artist working within the field of social engagement, technology, citizen participation and politics. Originally trained as an architect, her work explores citizens’ interaction with the built environment through technology, and our collective agency and responsibility in tackling complex issues surrounding our cities.
She works with diverse communities across the UK and internationally to develop participatory projects of different scales, ranging from interactive installations,
performances to pop-up architecture that help them make sense of their environments, express opinions in a playful and performative way, and collectively address issues including public safety, air quality, climate change and gender safety. She designs interfaces, fabricates hardware and develops software for her work, ranging from wearable technology, interactive installations and performances to web platforms, mobile phone apps and Internet of Things (IoT) tools.

Ling is currently an Associate Artistic Director at Kakilang and a Senior Design Lead & Creative Technologist at Umbrellium.
