Plateau

Plateau is an exploration of the North Carolina piedmont region. The piedmont, situated between the mountain and coastal region of the state, has long been home to tobacco farms, furniture production, and textile mills, among other industries. This series takes it’s inspiration from North Carolina’s eminent writer Thomas Wolfe and his short story “The Lost Boy”:

“Here,” thought Grover, “here is the Square as it has always been-and papa’s shop, the fire department and the City Hall, the fountain pulsing with its plume, the street cars coming in and halting at the quarter hour, the hardware store on the corner there, the row of old brick buildings oil this side of the street, the people passing and the light that comes and changes and that always will come back again, and everything that comes and goes and changes in the Square, and yet will be the same again.

Plateau is an attempt that finding, in the small towns of the piedmont region, a changelessness and consolation for the state’s rapid growth. Plateau holds on to innocence while looking towards the future and finding the quite global in the local.

Human Brain Project (HBP)

The world of ‘victims of brainwave control’ looks like science-fiction; it is full of technology, miracles, machines, and cyborgs. However, unlike cultural movement promoters such as Italian Futurists or Afrofuturists, these ‘victims’ meet with ‘Futurism’ in a different way. For them, those supernatural phenomena are not conceptions, but the reality. Do sciences progress or regress? Are we pursuing virtual or materialistic gains? Do we live in the world of conspiracy theories or in the Garden of Eden? Human Brain Project documents the questioners, a marginalized group of people who claim to have been remotely controlled by satellites via interference with their brainwaves. So far, their behavior has been recognized worldwide as a type of mental disorder. And they work really hard to prove that they are victims of some experiment, not of mental illness.

Photographs here record the bizarre moments of their daily living. Due to the intangible nature of the photographic subjects – activities claimed to have taken place in their minds – prolonged exposure and torchlight are used to mimic the alien world from their perspectives and to approach their mental states. When you walk on the street and see an ordinary building, or hear the screech of a motor vehicle?s brakes, you may suddenly sense an indescribable oddness in the air. And this odd atmosphere happens to be how they feel about the world – building may be surrounded by electromagnetic radiations and spies may hide in the crowd. Human Brain Project expresses no intention to prove or disprove the validity of brainwave control. Rather, I shot in a way similar to documenting certain religious rites and I hope the project paints a heterotopia for the ‘victims’ where we can learn the construction of their ideologies and relevant vocabularies, as well as contemplate on the concept of alienation from a wider angle

 

Bio

Mu Yang, born in Sichuan China, started photography in her college. In the past few years, Mu recorded various marginalized groups of people, who were constantly seeking their sense of belonging yet unable to blend in. Compared to exploring their physical conditions, her artworks put more emphasis on their psychological conundrum in this ever-evolving modern society. Mu?s documentaries are imaginative, most of which are ambiguous images steering between reality and fiction.
