Terrain is a manifestation of Wu's bicultural upbringing--the eastern and western influences in her life and art. This work is a visualization of journey, process and conceptual terrains. It embodies a Song dynasty landscape and that of the western Hudson River School mountain ranges. Beyond a natural landscape the work charts man made terrains. Data visualization of economic trends mirror lines of mountainous topographies.
