NUS alumni and practicing artists Stefen Chow and Huiyi Lin present a series of installation at the NUS Museum titled Homeless. 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.

The exhibition is composed of five photographic pairings that prompt to unpack the complexity of scaling first-generation wealth vis-à-vis the refugee crises. The technical tool of satellite imaging employed by Chow and Lin inquires into fair use, and their understanding of this contemporary moment of open-access knowledge. As political boundaries shift concurrently with daily life, Homeless also suggests the vagaries of social security, and the platforms that monitor and dictate them.
