Gabey Tjon a Tham is an installation artist working and living in the Hague, The Netherlands.

Gabey’s artistic practice revolves around the question: How natural is nature in our current time? In her work she is researching the complex systems that occur both in nature and in our digital world and how they affect each other through ever evolving processes. These principles are explored through audiovisual installations that are balancing between virtual and analog realities.

By acquiring cross-disciplinary knowledge in the natural sciences and computer science she finds connections between the natural and artificial in our anthropocentric environment. In her current practice she is focusing on working from location-specific experiences to reflect directly on environments where agents function with their own time cycles and behaviour, influencing a living system in becoming.
