Camille Wong received her B.A. in Art and Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her work uses food, a traditional subject of gluttony and overconsumption, to tackle more abstract concepts of overconsumption in our society, such as media, relationships, and technology. We consume media tirelessly in mass amounts not realizing its lasting impression. We see this in the way that viral trends are embedded into the youth, the way digital technology acts as an extension to our identity, and the way society still battles hegemonic gender identities. Influenced by the rate at which we consume media and cultural trends, she hopes to provide a retrospective analysis of contemporary society.
She works as the studio manager for a screen-printing studio, 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.
