“Invisible Atlas” presents the material and immaterial as deeply intertwined. Shen Wei creates a vision of a multi-dimensional world, in his own words, “a path to our desires for beauty, secrecy and pleasure.”
The concept of energy ow is deeply rooted in Chinese traditional culture, and is gaining wider interest in the contemporary western world. According to ancient philosopher Laozi, Qi embraces “all manifestations of energy, from the most material aspects of energy (such as the earth beneath your feet, the esh and the blood) to the most immaterial aspects (light, movement, heat, thought, and emotion)”.
