Keiken is a collective practice co-founded in 2015 by artists Tanya Cruz, Hana Omori and Isabel Ramos, and often working with multiple collaborators. They are based between London and Berlin and come from mixed diasporic backgrounds, including Mexican, Japanese, European, Jewish. Named after the Japanese word for ‘experience’, Keiken creates speculative worlds merging the physical and digital (‘phygital’) using moving-image, CGI, gaming software, installation, virtual/augmented reality, programming and gamified performance. Simulating new structures and ways of existing, they explore how societal introjection governs the way we feel, think and perceive.
