Elaine Yip 葉曉菱 is interested in cultural knowledge and educational development through digital media infrastructures. She seeks ways to engage with both current and historical forms of data, including travelling and connecting through food histories. Her practice is further informed by her diasporic position within colonial geopolitics and migration displacements.
Since 2017, Elaine is learning what it means to be a Treaty person today, as a Vietnamese-Chinese and Cantonese-Canadian forever tourist in her birth nation. Elaine has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a MA in Recreation and Leisure Studies from the University of Alberta. She can be found on long walks and playing recreational sports. The Anne Frank House and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are places that inspire her and she first dipped her toes into the Pacific Ocean in Hualian, Taiwan.
