Reshaping the question of what's real, Bali combines traditional photography and digital technology while Dempsey stages situations that have never occurred using theatricality and physical alterations. While Judy Wu handcrafts porcelain figures to create characters to depict unconventional stories and characters. Finally, Sabella combines model-making and photography to fabricate cinematic dreamscapes that explore perceptions of memory and renewal.
