Inspired by the imagination of dimensional space in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Wu MeiChi created a series of still images which merge various art styles and historical elements. This recent trilogy, “XXY”, “XYX”, and “YXX”, creates a distorted space against common sense by rearranging the structure of space. Using a mirror as the medium to cause variation within the forms of the original materials, the works display changes of the original objects’ physical properties, as well as their visual forms.
“XYX” combines the forms of paintings and photographs. With the geometric segmentation similar to modernist sculptures, and later with highly technical color photo enlargement, a series of saturated, striking images are produced.
