Spirit Pokemon, 2014
Tina Gong is an awkward turtle of a human being who also happens to be a user interface designer, founder of HappyPlayTime, and a 2011 Gallatin alumni. Her artistic work concentrates primarily on investigating the intersections and contradictions between opposing ideas and forms. Creation is a means in which she attempts to unite the paradoxical natures of her inner and outer worlds. She also despises talking about her self, which happens to be quite appropriate in an artist statement for an exhibition called “All You Can Be”. Gee whiz!
