Cao Fei


i. Mirror by China Tracy (2009)

Single channel color video with sound; 28 minutes


Cao Fei, aka China Tracy, has made one of the more worthwhile visual creations to come out of the popular virtual reality website, Second Life.  Her practice focuses on developing the relationships and technical possibilities of film, animation and the Internet to depict the swift and radical cultural changes such technology permits and fosters. 

Cao Fei has developed a unique pictorial language which superimposes reality and fiction in ways such sites as Second Life makes it ever harder to distinguish.
