Lim Ling Ern 

Ling Ern is currently pursuing a degree in Fine Arts, specialising in Interactive Media, Ling Ern is reading her penultimate year at the School of Art, Design and Media in Nanyang Technological University. Her works span across a spectrum, driven in directions of both arts and social phenomena. Ling Ern’s works are usually inspired by psychology as well as the various unique cultures in Singapore.

Human behaviour and interactions are often explored in her works. She enjoys creating interactive devices and installations that speak about prevalent societal phenomena. Being a sentimental person, she feels strongly for dwindling cultures in Singapore, such as the Chinese Puppetry and the Peranakan Culture. Through her works, she aims to play a part in reviving the cultures and hopes to create more awareness about it.



Singapore is a densely populated country which faces land scarcity. Urban planning is crucial for us to maximise land use. In the concrete jungle we are living now, urban media art can allow our environment to be more vibrant when we incorporate themes such as urban activitsm, telepresence and ecology. Urban media art can also introduce the element of interactivity in our society, bringing social interaction to greater heights. I would like to know more about how and what urban media art can do for Singapore through this workshop.
