ZHU JIA’s (b.1963, China) early video work explored urban phenomena revealing an analytic approach to imagined and real space. In Jia’s work for LANDSEASKY; Beyond my control, the two projections meet at the corner of two walls. Each projection shows a hand drawing in the projection. The space is compromised when a hand from one projection transitions to the other projection wall.
