Entry Description

Objectify Space is an ongoing project that consists of nine B&W photographic montages, each digitally constructed from multiple photographs shot at a single location. In this project, Wu explores how the ambiance of public spaces subconsciously affects personal experience. Recognizing that there’s a transformative power to physical space that photography — as the representation of a witness of events — cannot fully render representationally, Wu began to selectively fragment his photographs and re-situate them within a new conceptual framework where the collective fragments serve as a symbolic representation that communicates a sense of searching via disorientation.ion.
