Bread and Butter in a Field of Dreams – A Workshop Facilitated by Debbie Ding
Artist and technologist Debbie Ding – also known as the “one woman 3D development team” – will embark on an ambitious workshop to represent the last 10 years of her art as an interactive digital experience in the physical exhibition space.
Debbie Ding (DBBD.SG) is a visual artist and technologist who researches and explores technologies of perception through personal investigations and experimentation. Prototyping is used as a conceptual strategy for artistic production, iteratively exploring potential dead-ends and breakthroughs – as they would be encountered by amateur archaeologists, citizen scientists, and machines programmed to perform roles of cultural craftsmanship – in the pursuit of knowledge.
DBBD received a BA in English Literature from the National University of Singapore and, as a recipient of the NAC Arts Scholarship (Postgraduate), an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art, London. She has had solo exhibitions at The Substation Gallery, Singapore (2010) and Galerie Steph, Singapore (2013). Notable group exhibitions include “President’s Young Talents” (Singapore Art Museum, 2018); “After the Fall” (National Museum of Singapore, 2017); Singapore Biennale (2016); Radio Malaya (NUS Museum, 2016); Unearthed (Singapore Art Museum, 2014); Engaging Perspectives: New Art from Singapore (NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore, 2013); Primavera (Immanence, Paris, 2012). She currently lives and works in Singapore.
