Sumi Wu
(American, born 1967)

Location: Clark College, Vancouver

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Sumi Wu uses a circuit board-shaped steel structure as the framework for fused glass in the form of plant, animal, and nerve cells. She overlays the technological with the biological in an effort to ask how these fields are similar and how they intersect now and in the future.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Clark College.
