The core focus of The Representation of Art in the Digital Age is to discuss how art-making and art-viewing have been influenced by the surplus of information available in this Digital Age. The research aims to determine the role traditional art-making holds in this ever-changing landscape. The significance of materiality as a component of the aesthetic experience is exemplified just as much as it is negated. In this sharing session, Si Hui talks about her inspiration and process in creating art.
Ong Si Hui (b. 1993) is a visual artist based in Singapore. Working extensively in stones, she explores the spirit of the medium through slow and meticulous hand carving processes. The geometric forms and text-oriented works are often manifestations of her stream of consciousness.
Ong is a trained sculptor from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), and a recent graduate from Lasalle College of the Arts. In recent years, Ong is a finalist for the Visual Arts Development Association's 2017 Untapped Emerging Exhibition, and Affordable Art Fair Singapore's Young Talent Programme 2017/18. She has exhibited in Singapore, India, Japan, Taiwan, and New Zealand.
