The gallery says:


”First, picture the human body. Then, as if a camera were zooming in closer, go through all layers of skin, muscle, and bone right down to the tiniest molecule. What once appeared simple has a new level of complexity, of many small parts working together on a larger scale. That describes both the intricacy of molecular/cellular biology and the work of Cindy Lu, whose background in the subjects inform her artistic style in many ways.’’

Ms. Lu explained:

"In this age of big data and artificial intelligence, we are continually subjected to digital biopsy to feed the growth of entities that seek to monetize and control our behavior.’’
