This work is an argument initiated by Wendy Brown’s article Resisting Left Melancholy. There is the thingness of the thoughts that can be seen as the lost object. Extending this idea, the thingness of thoughts that comes from one’s personal or collective memories could become a pathological fixation. 

Wu Tzu-An

Tzu-An Wu works between experimental film and its expansions. He makes collages with analogue films, through mixing heterogeneous images, audio, and texts in an attempt to inquire about the constructs of (cinematic) narratives and the selves. He holds an MA in Media Studies from The New School, New York, and a BA in Gender and Cultural Studies from NTHU, Taiwan.
