Just found out about this new media art festival held in Beijing in September 2011. The artworks are interesting in that they explore different mediums and lie at the intersection of technology, art and science. Taken from the Creators Project:-
“Beijing has hosted many large scale new media art exhibitions this year, the most comprehensive of which opened this past Wednesday—the International Triennial of New Media Art, presented at the National Art Museum of China. This year’s exhibition explores the theme of “Translife,” addressing the deteriorating environment and other ecological issues.
As technology continues to pervade society more and more each day, art in Beijing now features plenty of new media styles. The Triennial showcases 53 works from 80 artists representing 23 countries, including a 13-piece “Weather Tunnel” section, which features a massive installation from our creator Ma Yansong and many works from the top students of the Chinese art academies. All of these works use new media methods to analyze many layers of possibilities in future life.”
