A DSLR camera sitting between two mirrors, and a series of still/moving images generated by it when the photographer operates the process.

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.

About this artwork 


This ensemble of the moving and still images invites the spectators to look, reflect on and experience different types of duration. The work intends to grasp the human and emotional connection through these durations; it also contemplates the temporal-spatial-image relationship exhibited via multiple telecommunicated surfaces.


With 2 years not being able to see each other in person due to Covid-19, the artist’s initial attempt was simply creating “covid portraits” of her parents via video chat with a Large Format analogue camera. In the process the artist was fascinated and sadly agonised by the still and moving images of the parents on various surfaces (print/digital), and how these digitised or mediated images are related to the “image” of them in the artist’s mind (or memories)? How do we experience and confront “surfaced” images from now and the past situated in a certain kind of temporal-spatial scenario/duration?  


The work here was produced and reproduced by multiple photographic apparatus and techniques – Large and Medium Format cameras, instant analogue photography (Polaroid), screenshots, darkroom printing etc…The process and the results prove to be somewhat a futile effort trying to break through the limitations of the surface-space and time. 


We are, at the same time, infinitely close and apart.
