Qingyu Luo

MA Photography The Image & Electronic Arts

My work is about the connection between the inner and outer space and the self, it is an exploration of the present state of myself. I was inspired by AI recognition technology that made me curious about how people recognize themselves. This work is part of a long-term project where I am exploring the self through the space around me, the environment, objects and my body parts.

The connection between myself and space is better felt in self-photography using digital and film cameras. For me, this time is wired, quiet and there is adequate time to observe myself. I blur my identity by marginalizing myself throughout the space, covering my face and body, turning the physical part of myself into a symbol. As a tag to constantly reinforce my identity and explore the border between self and non-self.


I believe that I am fluidable. In this space, I will eventually leave and my presence will disappear. I preserve my fragile existence by recording my spaces and objects.

About Mobula

Mobula is a camp homo sapien digging through the posthuman theories, the Sci-fi horror and the poor images.

As currently a multidisciplinary image creator based in London, they interpret the visual culture of the contemporary urban life, especially the screen culture, with the discarded ambience. 


They already explored certain topics using photography, moving images, handmade artifacts and interactive installation, such as the common visual and conceptual characteristics of AI and religions, also the regular process of multiple replacements between the reality, memories and photos.  


After graduated from MA Photography: The Image and Electronic Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London, they’ll continually take snapshots of the rubbish on the streets.
