Grounded Conversations - A Tour with Debbie Ding

Held in conjunction with the project The Library of Pulau Saigon, NUS Museum presents an artist talk with Debbie Ding, as part of the Grounded Conversations series. As a point of entry into the project, the artist will lead a virtual walking tour of her personal collection of 3D models of virtual trash bags and litter picked up in-world within Second Life. This conversation will pick up on an aspect of the artist’s practice as one concerned with resurrecting meaning from waste and remains.
