YAN Wai Yin (b.1994) works and lives in Hong Kong. She has been a member of Floating Projects Collective since 2015. Yan excels at the juxtaposition and insertion of literary texts in narratives. Through shifting personal observations and the temporal, emotional distance in different texts, Yan inscribes quotidian fragments of memories lingering in space and objects. 

忻慧妍 (生於1994年) 生活及工作於香港。自2015年來為據點。句點成員。忻氏擅於選用文學中的語句並置穿插於敘述過程中,透過轉移個人觀察與不同文本的時空情感距離,刻劃殘留於空間物件中的日常瑣碎記憶。
