This work exists only in book form; in other words, apart from the one image above, Chen does not show the images on their own. He says that he would consider the project "as a sculpture rather then a regular photo book," given that "it involves a physical engagement with this three dimensional object of seen and unseen part of images." The book itself is 240 pages, which could mean a lot of frustration for someone like me! Still, this is obviously not a production oversight, given that the blank spot is meant to conceal what would allow the viewer to identify with the image. From Chen's perspective, he says that this point corresponds to "the deepest spot in my memory." Chen also expresses this point as the "studium" of the image, quoting in this way from Roland Barthes' famous book on photography, Camera Lucida. We might be tempted to think that In Between is only an exercise in formalism, then, but that's not quite the case.
