San Francisco based artist Christine Wong Yap was a multi-disciplined visual artist who practice was an exploration of the competing pulls of optimism and pessimism.

The artist also was engaged in self-directed research looking at slang, weather and temperaments in Manchester; the case for optimism in America's near future; time perspectives; and psychology. The artist also documented her research on her blog.
