Gerui Wang’s research interests span arts, public policy, environment, and technologies. Her forthcoming book From Painting to Pillow: Landscape, Governance and Ecology in China, 1000-1400 demonstrates the overlooked ecological thinking and notions of “sustainability” manifested in flourishing landscape imagery across artistic media, medicinal treatises, cartographical practices, and geographical writings. Gerui’s new project examines artificial intelligence and contemporary art, especially works produced by Asian Artists or Artists of the Asian Diaspora.
