Ming Fay, born in Hong Kong, emigrated to the US in 1961 and founded the Epoxy Art Group, which provided a platform and community for Chinese American artists based in New York. One of Ming's noteworthy projects was their Canutopia, an installation of fabricated plants that were imagined hybrids of various species. Ming combined the meanings and symbology of the plants to create a narrative that fused their Eastern heritage with their Western lifestyle. Today in the studio, we'll be creating our own imaginary plants, imbuing them with meaning, and then hanging them from our monofilament wires to create an immersive installation.
