Hope Wang is a Chicago-based artist, arts facilitator, and poet. Wang translates images of architectural “scars'' in factory parking lots, construction sites, and city commutes through meticulous, repetitive processes such as handweaving and printmaking. Contending with sloppy traces of human activity around sites of industrial labour, her work considers the ways architectural spaces become artifacts of memory. She explores loss and longing, as well as questions what happens to our memories when those physical artifacts disappear or change. hopewang.com
