Not because I make art that is explicitly about the API experience (I don’t), but because of the fact that I’ve always felt like an outsider in this country. To be Asian American is to be perpetually foreign—and so I have an intrinsic understanding lastpass opera of otherness, of not belonging. But through directing it, I’ve come to realize that I don’t have a problem with the actual opera. It is incredible in that it actually doesn’t paint the Japanese or Americans in a good light.
BASF and its employees supported the victims of the China earthquake by giving donations to the BASF Stiftung, which, together with UN-HABITAT, financed the erection of large, sturdy tents to provide affected people with shelter and medical care. Local workers manufactured the tents from locally available materials. After putting up the tents, they received their first income after the disaster. Long-term aid was devoted particularly to the reconstruction of a school in Yongquan village. During construction, special attention was paid to the building’s earthquake safety to ensure that it would not be destroyed by future quakes.

For the single young mother forced to work as a prostitute, struggling to support her young son, I used Buddhist chanting and voice with electronic loops to surround her and to show her lotus-like purity. My father always encouraged me to study a Chinese instrument, but I was just not into it. One day, I remember my father, after university, came back home and said, “Hey, your classmate wants to study pipa with me!” I lent her the pipa and immediately got jealous.

The hybrid, mutable character of cultural tradition is a recurring motif in Wong’s art. It is often linked to a discussion about the complex construction of identity, and about ways that tradition can be stretched and challenged. Another strand in Windows on the World is the tradition of Cantonese opera, and how it survived and flourished outside mainland China. When doing his research, Wong noticed that, in Hong Kong, Cantonese opera kept its traditional ritualistic roots, at the same time as managing to renew itself by incorporating elements from the Chinese film industry, as well as influences from Western music. In this malleable identity, and in its openess to including novelty, while at the same time keeping the tradition alive out of ritual necessity, the artist found an interesting correspondence with the history of Chinese science fiction.
