Profile

Tielin Ding

Photographer

Born in 1996 in Chongqing, China. Tielin Ding is a flâneur, observer and interdisciplinary artist based in NYC whose diverse practice involves working with playful objects, indeterminate traces and movements to create performative actions. His application of the methodology of “Mapping” and “Walking” gives him more opportunity to reflect on invisible systems within urban and natural spaces. Under the practice of way-finding, mark-making and game-changing, he has been very interested in drifting in the field of language and space, risking getting lost from point A to point B. He studied architecture engineering at Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture for his bachelor and graduated from MFA in photography at Parsons School of Design, The New School in NYC in 2022. His works have been showing in Reclaim Award 2020 in Cologne, Germany; Site Santa Fe museum New Mexico, U.S; Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, New York, U.S; Noorderlicht International Photo Festival, Heerenveen, Netherlands and so on.
