less. Chow and Lin’s ongoing research-based project visually articulates the connection between geopolitics and global events. The new iteration in NUS puts together visual indicators of private and transnational economies, current mobility of communities, and the shared aspect of power in society. Chow and Lin is a collaborative husband and wife duo that takes its beginnings with Poverty Line, a photographic series in 2010, which has since expanded from China to 28 countries.
