From October to December 2018 the MoT+++ space will be converted into the working studio of visual artist Wu Chi-Tsung. During his residency, Wu Chi-Tsung will develop new works in his experimental photography series of Cyano-Collages. The public will have the opportunity to see Wu Chi-Tsung’s work in progress on select dates during this period.
Conventional cyanotype photography uses objects placed on paper to create a negative or imprint of the object in white against a cyan-blue background. The paper, having previously been covered with a solution, is exposed to an ultraviolet light source, such as sunlight, causing a chemical reaction that results in the distinctive blue colour, and leaves unexposed paper white. Wu Chi-Tsung uses the cyanotype method to create large abstract photographic works that echo the mountainous landscapes of traditional Chinese Shan Shui ink and brush paintings.
