Li Zihan Iris is a new media artist hailing from Beijing, China. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Digital+Media at Rhode Island School of Design after four-year's study in Hong Kong. Under the cultural collision of mainland China and Hong Kong, Zihan is passionate about the cultural and political impact on arts. Her four-month stay at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague deepens her interest in exploring culturally informed expressions of art, as she worked alongside artists across the globe.
Working mostly in installation, performance and wearbles, Zihan thinks of technology as a means to reflect on the relation of people, cultures and cities in more sensible forms. She aims to reinterpret both the traditional and the emerging conditions of art through the lens of new media.
