Artist: Bonnie Chen
Curated by: WforWee
Organized by: Bar Pa Tea
My name is Bonnie and I'm an artist/designer. By day, I work in the trenches of the tech world at an AI marketing software company thinking in binaries and logic. As soon as I cross that borough line back into Brooklyn, I slip into the natural world again.
Flow, serendipity, are vocabularies that guide my art making process. I generally let this amorphous “intuition” take over. I follow my curiosity. “I wonder...” I answer. It's a very empowering process—being able to excavate your own questions.
I’ve curated a life for myself where I get to spend equal parts time doing what I love passionately and dutifully: art & design. At this point, I don’t think I could have one without the other. Of course, that (like everything), is subject to change. Check my whereabouts in 10 years—haha.
I used to be obsessed with the future. Over the years I am much more enlightened to the fact that the here and now is all we have. Isn’t that what measures a good life? Not the # of breaths, but the # of times our breath gets taken away.
Maybe that’s too deep.
My work is feminine/how I express (my femininity) in ways my words and body cannot. And boba? They’re tits! Having them; they’re pretty great.
