Camille Wong received her B.A. in Art from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her work uses images of food to tackle concepts of overconsumption in our society. She’s interested in how quickly we consume media in large amounts through the internet and social media. By playing with symbols, titles, and industrial materials, she critiques how quickly information is disseminated through our culture and how we automatically genderize objects and tasks. Speed comes with its own consequences— such as the overload of information and options. Similar to eating that last bite of cake knowing you’ll be sick from it moments later, her work suggests the feeling of willful self-indulgence.
She works as the studio manager for a printmaking studio, works at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, and is the co-founder of Cult Club, an online literary arts magazine, which you can find here. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
