About Tong Wu
Tong Wu is a new media artist and photographer. Influenced by her previous experience as a photojournalist and documentary filmmaker, most of her work focuses on examining digital humanity and internet users’ identity crisis in the digital age from the perspective of sociology and philosophy.
She develops her practice within the intersection of videos, human avatars, sociological theories and technology, creating hybrid digital sculptures, web-based and augmented reality artwork. Through an absurd and dystopian tone, her work depicts the alienation she observes and feels as a human living in the era of tech mania.
Tong holds a B.A. degree in photojournalism from the University of Maryland, College Park and a M.P.S. degree from ITP, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.
