"Diary.sg" by Jane Koh
In the project Diary.sg, the artist Jane Koh attempts to explore the online sociology and psychology of Singapore’s female Generation Y Netizens. Through interviews, photographs and augmented reality technology (in collaboration with Yee Miao Ling), Jane explores both their domestic and public persona. Her multimedia photographic installation allows the audience to travel into the cyber realm. Juxtaposing their online with off line reality, she hopes to question viewers about the presentation of identity and reality of today's digital age. Koh will be giving a short artist talk, along with the other photography major students, on May 4, 6 p.m. -10 p.m. at 2902 Gallery.
