Justine Poplin's professional experience has witnessed the shift from analogue to digital. Her work examines the rapid cross-fertilisation in the arts, which extends preconceived notions of identity in the digital age. She has seen involvement with a variety of hybridised art forms and new media works both in Australia and China. Poplin's work has been published in a book documenting Contemporary Art in China "Contemporary Art Studio" through Hunan Fine Arts Publishing House (2008). In 2005 she was accepted into Red Gate Gallery's residency program in Beijing where she first explored issues such as cross-cultural exposure and its impact on process and conceptual thinking through visual communication.
