Biographical Text

A visual artist, technologist, writer, and independent researcher, Debbie Ding graduated with a BA (Hons) in English Literature from National University of Singapore in 2007. Her interest in the maps and urban spaces led her into creating the Singapore gegeographical Society, an ongoing project which she has been developing since 2010. The Singapore Psychogeographical Society has been devoted to promoting a better understanding of the world through ludic adventures, independent research, digital documentation, and data/archival activism. Through “psychogeoforensics”, it encourages people to construct/reconstruct their own narratives around the various physical traces, histories, and archives that may be overlooked or neglected in a fast-developing urban city like Singapore. Her recent projects continue her fascination with mapping the urban environment and saw her extending her explorations to cities in Malaysia, Australia, Korea, and France.

In 2010, Ding was selected for the Substation’s Visual Arts Open Call and held her first solo exhibition The Singapore River as a Psychogeographical Faultline. She has since participated in several exhibitions and performances locally. In 2012, she was selected for an Artist Exchange/Residency Program organised by The Substation and Seoul Art Space_Mullae, and was awarded a grant by the National Arts Council Singapore for Dena Foundation’s Artist Residency Program at the Centre des Récollets, Paris, France.
