Wenqiang Jia (b. 1998), better known as Javen, is a multidisciplinary artist, experience designer, and poet based in London and Beijing.
With a background in product design and speculative design, Javen explores the connections and developments between technology and culture, society and the humanities, creating poetic interactive experiences that explore the intersections of existentialism, post-modernism, fundamentalism, and the ethics of technology, creating new ways of interacting with experience through the use of mixed media and new technologies that question deeply held social mappings.
