Atlas of the Closed Worlds —Wu Chi-Yu Solo Exhibition
Artist: Wu Chi-Yu
Published Date: May 2022
Following his four-channel video installation work The LED Future (2020), which investigated artificial light and the consciousness behind technology, artist Chi-Yu Wu presented his work Atlas of the Closed Worlds at TheCube Project Space. Through the approach of scenario planning, this work unfurled extensive research, stretching beyond historical facts along the long river of time, and including a cornucopia of changes in the surroundings and myriad imagined possibilities. Events from history and novels were amalgamated into a repository of information, generating different closed worlds through random numbers and evoking dystopian fantasies.
