Joanne Lam is a 23 year old artist born in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver, Canada. She graduated from McGill University in May 2011 with a degree in Cultural and Communication Studies, and subsequently went on to attend Hyper Island's digital media program in Stockholm, Sweden. Joanne loves to draw connections between unexpected things, or otherwise finding poetry in unexpected places. She is especially passionate about sound and music, and she is a classically trained musician with an unhealthy bias towards the cello. Joanne found it hard to write this bio in third person without sounding too much like Elmo.
