In the exhibition Proximities,  several of the works in the Random Walk series Wu uses her body to track time and space, and marking her movements, location, geography, and topography. “Crossings” (2015), is a site-specific wall drawing that records a walk completed by the artist throughout Boston. Her recorded movements grow exponentially as she works directly on the wall. The dot and line drawing is made of construction paper and fishing line and creates a rhizome-like network.
