Hsu Ting is a Taiwanese artist. Using photography as her main creative medium, Hsu Ting transforms photographic images into spatial installations. Her work is often curated to site-specific locations , integrating images and spatial relationships of different dimensions to reflect on the aspects of photography and reality. Hsu likens photography to painting, the act of producing brushstrokes with the camera. Her imagery is based on her surroundings, such as scenes from the city streets or her room. Regarding her photographic works as a process rather than a conclusion, her works attempt to extend the photographic image beyond the finite moment in which it is captured. Her images are often abstracted until distance, time and place are blurred and unfold into the present space. From shooting to display, her clear and purposeful manipulation studies the photographic concepts of light and shadow, as well as how the picture frame and structural elements can highlight the connection between image, space and the viewer.
