Wing Po So, born into a family of a 3rd generation Chinese medicine doctor, spent all her childhood in her father’s pharmacy playing cartoon cards with other kids from the grocery store next door. Graduated from Washington University in Saint Louis, her profound connection with the place where she grew up turns into a distant feeling upon the rapid city change.
As a kid, she used to write on walls with white cuttlefish bones, and put steamed roots on her feet to make black footmarks on the street. Growing up she becomes aware of natural resources, and decides to create her own imaginary space with Chinese herbs to reflect her interpretation of the traditions. The origin of traditional Chinese medicine is an observation, sensitivity and imagination towards nature.
