I am an interdisciplinary artist deeply interested in notions of place and belonging. I position myself as a storyteller, analysing mine and others' narratives and points of convergence. Utilising participatory art, photography, writing, and new media practices, I explore the possibility of human activity across virtual and analog communication networks with the intention of understanding lived experiences, collective histories, and the sociocultural fabric of the post-Internet era.
Grace Wong grew up in Queens, NY to immigrant parents in the midst of the dot-com boom, witnessing a generation of individuals who were becoming deeply embedded in digital identities. Following a 6-month period where she lived, worked and studied outside of America, she became fixated with documenting and understanding everyday narratives through herself and the people she encountered. She completed her interdisciplinary studies in 2018 at Carnegie Mellon University with a BHA in fine arts and global management with an additional major in human computer interaction. Since then, she has participated in group shows in Rochester, NY, Pittsburgh, PA, Alexandria, VA, Athens, OH, and Somerville, MA. Her photographs have been cited by local and national outlets including BBC China, Pittsburgh Tribune Live and 90.5 WESA. Outside of her independent art practice, she is a digital content creator at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and a freelance photographer.
