Ethnographer Mary Ann O’Donnell has sought alternative ways of inhabiting Shenzhen, the flagship of China’s post Mao economic reforms. O’Donnell creates and contributes to projects that reconfigure and repurpose shared spaces, where our worlds mingle and collide, sometimes collapse, and often implode.
Ongoing projects include her blog, “Shenzhen Noted” and the Handshake 302 Art Space in Baishizhou. Her research has been published in positions: east asian cultures critique, TDR: The Drama Review, and the Hong Kong Journal of Cultural Studies. O’Donnell is currently English Editor of Architectural Worlds, the journal of the Shenzhen University School of Architecture, and a lecturer in the MVA (Experience Design) of the Academy of Visual Arts, HKBU.
