Artistic practice[edit]

Wu’s art practice mainly focuses on the "micro-alienation" phenomenon[6] within the contemporary society, which consists of the impact and control on individual's spirit and body by modern technology, internet power and popular culture.[7] Wu works in multimedia installation, performance, interactive media, and digital video,[8] such as sensor based interactive installation[9] and augmented reality application.[10]
