Interested in the intersection of manual labor and machine work, System Dynamic - Manual Stread, a window installation by Miggie Wong, investigates the dynamic problems of a social, economic, mechanical or political system. Her act of ‘streading’ the ribbons (streading, a neologism by Wong, refers to the laborious and repetitive act of making curls to the ribbons. She refuses to speak of curls) as well as the act of numbering them in order to create a system represent her efforts to map an understanding of dynamic systems characterized by interdependence, interaction, information flow and circular causality.
System Dynamic - Manual Stread is now on view at the 24/7 window gallery at Grab Bag Studio.
