As a Chinese immigrant artist team, our work deals with cultural displacement and identity issues, as well as social and cultural problems in today’s China in the context of globalization. Taking form of digital multimedia presentation, our projects often adapt symbolism and metaphors from Chinese folklore, and reinterpret them in a contemporary context.
