Janine Wong's research of hybrid processes in her work as a printmaker and book artist utilizes traditional technologies and modern advances. This research allows her to explore her interests in DNA, abstract biological systems and cell transformation. The result is an exciting response in the form of prints, book covers, and installation work that transcends the subject matter. Janine creates an aesthetic exploration that perfectly dances within the overlapping boundaries of art and science.
Janine's enthusiasm for the prospects of artistic interpretation of scientific research shines through her current work and aligns perfectly with the goals of Synergy. Her approach to her visual medium is exciting and merges well with the ideas of modern oceanography.
The results from Janine's collaboration provide exciting prospects that will allow our perspectives of scientific research to resonate with the artistic possibilities inherent in her work.
In Janine's words...
I am interested in collaboration, especially in the sciences where abstract concepts lead to form new visual vocabulary. My work is in the area of artists’ books and would lend itself to a dialogue and collaboration with a scientist at Woods Hole.
