    Joel Ong is an artist whose works connect scientific and artistic approaches to the environment. Originally trained as an ecologist, he began by designing sonic systems of resonance and feedback to explore physical or acoustic environments. Joel is an alumni of the Center of Excellence in Biological Arts, SymbioticA at the University of Western Australia.

    Joel Ong is a Singaporean artist who has most recently completed a Masters in Biological Arts degree at SymbioticA in the University of Western Australia. He is primarily interested in the definitions of listening that are developed from interdisciplinary backgrounds, extending from scientific explorations of physical resonance, vibratory conductance, to the psychological, anthropological and imaginative premise of embodiment. His most recent work amplified the nanoscale vibrations on an artificial eardrum in order to represent its listening activity within its environment.
