A Modern Flaneur's Possessions
A Modern Flaneur's Possessions 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 the personal experience. Recognizing that there’s a transformative power in 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.
