Location: Museum Entryway (Floor 1)
In the third year of the Antigravity project, Elaine K. Ng installed ‘a circle, a line, an arc,’ using bamboo, sassafras, cotton thread and rice paper to create a cloud-like experience as visitors enter and exit the Museum.
This annual commission is coupled with a week-long guest appearance in the Amphitheater Hot Shop of Corning Museum of Glass where she’ll work collaboratively with the gaffers to realize her designs in glass. This collaborative program was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but will be scheduled for 2021.
Elaine K. Ng holds a BA in music and pre-veterinary medicine from the University of California, Davis, an MBA and MA in nonprofit management from Southern Methodist University, and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art.

In 2017-18 she was awarded a U.S. Fulbright Fellowship for research in Taiwan.
