Born in 1984 in Singapore, Debbie Ding received a BA in English Literature from the National University of Singapore, and as a recipient of the NAC Arts Scholarship (Postgraduate), an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art, London. Debbie Ding re-appropriates formal, qualitative approaches to collecting, organising, and interpreting assemblages of information — using this to open up possibilities for alternative constructions of knowledge. She uses prototyping as a strategy for artistic production, and to iteratively explore potential dead-ends and breakthroughs in the pursuit of knowledge. Ding’s artworks take the form of computer-aided investigations into the technologies of perception, archaeological and historical finds, studies of changing features within urban geography, and informal approaches to archiving and mapping under the moniker ‘Singapore Psychogeographical Society’. She lives and works in Singapore.
