Wang Xue Lu (Lorraine)’s works mainly focus on probing different kinds of relationships. Her works centre on the relationship between human and the environment, which is meant to be more time related and evocative. Influenced by the environmental catastrophe, she extracts the different characteristics and details of environment to comb and reconstruct relationships. She treats her works as a linkage between human and nature. Lorraine went on an exchange program in Germany in 2018, which made a significant impact on her career. Now, she mainly focuses on exploring the social relationships in people’s daily life. She uses typography and motion graphic to visualize different social situations, portraying the struggling innermost and the movements.
“HI?” uses typography to record the traces of people time after time in an elevator, where social phobia and social awkwardness happen all the time. In this microcosm of society, social situations could differ because of varied relationships. Say hi or ignore is always a hidden question.
