If art is a reflection of the creator, then Sita Wong's work is a visual collage of influences from East and West. She is interested to create works where both cultures within a piece not only converse with one another through their traditions of material, form, and craftsmanship but also through their original cultural contexts. This seminar will begin with a brief discussion of how culture-based knowledge drives innovation and how creativity flourishes by reviewing a few actual cases of artists' works. Then, Sita will introduce her recent projects and highlights of the creative process from the initial concept to completion. Lastly, she will preview her upcoming exhibition.
