Interactive and digital art make headway in China

Though Chinese contemporary art has taken the world by storm, its new media arm is only now coming to fruition. Given the elements of interactivity, new media art gives new confidence to expressing cultural baggage through a mix media of the Internet, films, music, games and objects. The world has devoted festivals to it such as Ars Electronica, Sonar and Documenta. And spaces like the new Yuanfen New Media Art Space in the heart of Dashanzi’s 798 art district are now giving the form a platform in Beijing.

American lawyer turned Microsoft man, David Ben Kay is a 20-year Beijing resident that has morphed his spacious loft into a space dedicated to creativity and innovation. Kay says, “Being able to provide the platform for art and technology to come together in this space is a dream come true for me. I know firsthand that art and technology can individually change lives, and when you bring them together, new worlds are created.”

Digital Safari assembles a diverse array of artistic visions to create art work using digital media. The works are by eight contemporary artists from around the world, showing their innovative ideas about representation through the free use of materials and technology. I hoped to generate an imaginary, noir urban environment within the frame of gallery space; a vibrating interpenetration of moving images and interactive installations which immerse visitors in a space and time in which they can explore the digital art work to reveal their inner self.

I am grateful to Robert Thurmer for his diligence and expertise, as well as Tim Knapp who faced
the challenge of setting up the first group new media art exhibition at CSU’s art gallery.

Yuanfen New Media Art Space is honored to showcase the work of three artists who take us to the realm between the real and the virtual, between our conscious state and dreams. Yam Lau from Canada, Ma Yongfeng from China and Michael Yuen from Australia come together to present three unique new media experiences. Each artist, in his own way, takes us on a journey where we find ourselves standing upon reality's threshold, gazing beyond into another world - a virtual one. These virtual worlds have germinated within the minds of each of the artists and are revealed to us through each artist's unique, creative vision.

The expectant exhibition 《Disorientation II》 held on the day of 8th Mar 2008 is the continuance of 《Disorientation I》 in 2006. Because the inner pattern of the place, voice and space of the exhibition field was modified last year, the exhibition of 《Disorientation II》 will be more suitable to co-performances of the three artists, including Jin Feng, Liang Wei and Ma Yongfeng in the aspects of exhibition displays. The word “Disorientation” refers to an existence state of being both mixed and individual. It will never walk in the same direction; it’s an existence way of the individual in the group. If it is shown in the aspect of the art, it means that the few things can avoid being influenced by the ideology in present social background, while the artists tend to develop with the direction of individualization. The exhibited works of the three artists seem to be of no connections to each other: the works of Jin Feng are of individualism of idolization, while the works of Liangwei are new typed paintings under the background of industrial society, and the works of Ma Yongfeng are partial to studying the photography and the media science. The whole exhibition will show the different person conceptions, styles and the considerations formed during the works finished by the three artists coexisting on the similar joint of the artistic ecological circle under the macro background of multiple typed contemporary arts.
