On View at the Café: Victoria Fu
Now on view at the Hammer's café is Victoria Fu's Bubble Over Green. Interested in the relationship of the body to technology, Victoria Fu creates videos that evoke a sense of tactility. A disembodied hand peels back and paints over layers of imagery that seem unending. In filming her videos, Fu digitally composites surfaces and objects from the studio with virtual spaces, turning a solid body into a portal. The depth created in these videos can be disorienting for viewers. We have become used to way that windows and buttons move through the spaces of our smart phones, tablets, and computer screens. Victoria Fu heightens this activity, making the viewer hyperaware of the way that technology has shaped our sense of perception.
