Chan received her bachelor’s degree from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong in 2013, majoring in Critical Intermedia Laboratory. Since graduation, she has been collecting fragments of everyday life and studying them via the medium of photography, slowly archiving and reorganizing these elements as a kind of creating.
