Asia Art Archive welcomed data visualiser Jane Pong as our resident during spring 2014.
During this period, Pong experimented with data sourced from AAA’s readily available digital collection and online resources. Focusing on the history of exhibitions as a thread of inquiry, Pong created data visualisations to imagine how researchers might source and use this information in the future, with select findings being featured in the fourth issue of AAA’s e-journal, Field Notes.
Jane Pong was former graphics editor at South China Morning Post, where she specialised in producing data-related information graphics. With a background in both science and arts, and majors in chemistry, psychology, and linguistics, her work attempts to bring aesthetics to scientific rigor and form to artistic introspection.
Jane Pong’s residency included a public talk on 12 March.
