Yumo Wu (she/her/hers) works with the extension of photographic systems. She studies the ontology and philosophy of photography to examine the deceptions and limitations of our perception, photographic techniques, and photographic images. Wu sees herself as a distant operator by navigating through dynamic relationships among various concepts—such as the interplay between the operator and the observer, the dynamic interaction of seeing and being seen, the delicate duality bridging representation and prototype, the nuanced tension oscillating between fixity and fluidity, and the intriguing juxtaposition of stasis and speed. She employs a counterintuitive gesture to puncture the medium with resistance and pose new questions, gazing backward into the future to uncover overlooked accidents from the past. Wu is currently based between Beijing, China and Berlin, Germany.
