Janice Ka-Wa Cheung is an artist and researcher born in Hong Kong. She completed her studies in media art at the City University of Hong Kong in 2017.  Janice is currently a Ph.D. student in the Humanities program at Concordia  University. She continues to pursue research-creation study with interest in revealing the multifaceted digital self through installation art. Her work examines how digital technology provides multiple stages to explore and curate representations of self, and at the same time how the infrastructure  and algorithms of the digital media twist one’s self-images and encourage or  even impose upon one to see the self from certain ways. Her current work aims to  reveal one’s postmodern, fragmented, and polymorphic identity by  decontextualizing and dissolving one’s apparent representation. She believes  that emphasizing fragmentation and ambiguity could encourage one to  consciously feel and examine the ways of seeing self in a living world that is  dynamically composed of assemblies of human and nonhuman actants.
