Sofia Sue-Wah-Sing. The Tunnel. Installation View. 2023. Visual Arts Mississauga
The Tunnel is a series of photographs that depict a psychological phenomenon in which I recede into myself, disassociating from the world around me. It represents deep and anxious rumination and the chaos of spiraling thoughts.

Sofia Sue-Wah-Sing. Black Box. Detail. 2023.
The Black Box in psychology represents the unseen mental processing that occurs between the reception of a stimulus and a behavioral output. It represents the mystery of the mind. In this installation piece, called Black Box, I use the Black Box as a symbol for investigating the unseen processes of my own mind, trying to make sense of the cycle between calm and chaos that I have become trapped in.
