Slit is an immersive work about the relationship between inner space and collective consciousness of human beings. When we are viewing this immersive light and shadow from the micro perspective, we might find that we are gazing at the flying dust in the physical space, light and shadow itself, digital particles or even just the reflection of the projecting pixels. It could also simply be the visionary images of the theory of quantum physics. At the same time, it is also a selflessness moment entering the emptiness. What is reality? The reality is being at the moment through our observation.
Jessica FU has been working on a series of moving image work called Slit since the summer of 2020. She researched Buddhist cosmology, mythology and quantum physics while producing the moving image and digital images work. It has become the inner journey for her to seek for something from her inner world. She has started to research deeply on the topics related to Buddhist cosmology which She has heard about when she was young. She tried to understand the ever changing world and the Karma of the human condition from another perspective. Her creation is based on the ideas of research on scientific experiments, its connections to the mysterious imagination of the unknown future of our world.
