My collaboration with Yedan Qian, Miliac Zec and Winslow Turner Porter III is bringing tactical experience into virtual reality and guide people into the dream of a TREE. Our TREE will have its premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2017.
Our work from Music Tech Festival is turning into a film: Body Hack – a 20-min documentary about #MTFLabs: Body+Performance with Viktoria Modesta by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Sheila Hayman. It was quite a memory that we literally have iterations of the performance after every single actual show.

Instructor in Body + Internet Wintersession Workshop Series with Jifei Ou and Lily Bui
Internet presentation and physical body are both representations of the individual identity. The conflict and duality of both reach this tense border, where our independent existence is questioned. The class will aim on the blurring overlaps and exchanges between physical and virtual forms, embracing philosophy, speculative design, sci-fi literature, technical development as well as practical industrial perspectives. The exploration will be our fantasy and fear in the virtual-physical future.
With a focus on Internet culture, sensory system exploration, body extensions and alternative, corporal forms of connections, students from MIT, Brown, and RISD will accomplish individual and collaborative works ranging from completely industry facing design concepts to speculative aspects and conceptual art works. The works will culminate in two simultaneous gallery shows, one in Providence, and one in Boston.
Instructor in RISD winter session course with Mo Kong.
Japanese anime always satisfies our wild fantasies and explores the extreme situations when profound contradictions arise between technology, human and nature. This production course introduces students to a rich selection of modern Japanese sci-fi anime works from the 1950s to the present and encourages them to construct their own dream land. Workshops are given for experimenting with digital video editing, creature creation, and semi-functional electronics. Throughout the semester, students will work on a series of projects and a final individual or collaborative work. Artist case studies including Osamu Tesuka, Fujiko Fujio, Hayao Miyazaki, Mamoru Oshii, Satoshi Kon and Katsuhiro Otomo.
