The lifestyle magazines present ideas of the material world, most of them are usually considered as a commercial based, open sourced media, with thousands of duplicates printed every issue. They are superbly designed, printed and produced but last for just a few weeks only to be thrown away as garbage or recycled.

Wu has given back issue magazines a new life. Using butterfly as a symbol, represent their beauty and glorious, but a very short lifespan.

After a series of manufacture and furnishing, they lost their commercial nature, and have transformed into unique and exclusive art pieces.

By using the magazine pages as a material, and using the motif of the butterfly – perhaps her intention is to find a poetic language to set the viewer “ free” to a more transcendence and spiritual feeling than the original magazine might have.

Perhaps it might shift the viewers position from one of consumer to one who seeks loftier and more meaningful values.
