Chow and Lin

The crux of Chow and Lin’s practice lies in their methodology of statistical, mathematical and computational techniques to address global issues since 2009. Through a typological, photographic approach, Chow and Lin’s projects are driven by the discursive backgrounds in economics, public policy, media, and further augmented by exchanges with specialists from those fields. Their works have been referenced by the World Bank and showcased at biennales and museums internationally. Their works are in the permanent collection of the MOCP Chicago, CAFA Museum, Beijing and Thessaloniki MOP.
