About Daily Notes:

 Dongyi Wu's presentation at Equinox Gallery "Daily Notes" mainly features her recent three series of works: PasserbyTiredand No Longer Human. "Daily Notes are probably for repeatedly recording some of the things that seem to be useless. But they might remind people of the things that are mostly forgotten or ignored, which could be the treasure of our lives," says Wu. Passerbyshows people who walk on streets with interesting clothes and accessories. By capturing their actions images and the wearing colors, Wu wants to show their lifestyle and some of their life attitude. Series Works Tiredshare an interesting experience from Wu. She said:" I felt very sleepy once an afternoon. I gradually felt my eyeballs were almost falling off from my eyes, and my eyelashes were also falling. Then I recorded the moment of feeling by my works." The inspiration of No Longer Humancomes from the first three chapters of a Japanese Novel <No Longer Human>. It told a young man who tried to survive in the complex society. The salmon strip on the necklaces represents the young man's soul, and the other parts on works show the different surroundings that the young man may suffer.

Lucid Dreams
“Lucid Dreams” is Dongyi’s second solo exhibition, which feature her recent wearable artworks, body jewelry, sculptures, several of which are awarding-winning. “Lucid Dreams” continues focusing on expressing emotions by exploring stories took place in daily life and night dreams. Wu has focused on exploring night dreams from 2015. She believes that people have various images that arise in their dreams caused by daily experiences, personal matters, and sensations experienced in our lives. All images or ideas that occur in dreams are recreated, and real emotions are able to appear clearly. Emotions in dreams tend to be real and clear, and people’s sensitivity to them promotes the clarity of genuine emotion. Such as her series sculptural works named “Dreams” and “Continuous dreams,” she wants to express the anxiety concealed by daily life by exploring people’s dreams. However, from 2017, Wu was not limited to the expression of dreamy images. She found the power of small scenes in daily lives, which those scenes appear to have little meaning, but actually have the power to reveal hidden emotions. Combining the stories from day and night, “Lucid Dreams” could be presented the emotions buried deep in people’s minds.
