Dr. Julian Wu • USA • Neurosurgeon

For their collaboration, the visual artist Yu-Wen Wu combined her interest in the fluidity of water with the poetry of Sam Ou’s music, Ping-Nan Hseuh’s brush and ink calligraphy and images derived from MRI scans and other neuro-imaging techniques provided by Dr. Julian Wu into horizontal, scroll-like forms, hung from floor to ceiling.

“From Thinking Hands,” Wu writes, “is a collaboration addressing the interdisciplinary crossing of boundaries between art and science, East and West, the forces of nature and the forces of man.”
