In "Live in RMB City" (2009), China Tracy (Cao Fei’s avatar in Second Life), acts as participant, guide and tourist as she introduces her son China Sun to the platform, raising essential and more light-hearted topics along the way, including sex, celebration, politics, creativity, beliefs, life and death.

This fantasy tour combines past, present and future, punctuated by journeys between the real and virtual worlds.

Cao Fei

Born in 1978, Guangzhou (China)

Inspired by popular and traditional sources – film, advertising, manga, theatre – Cao Fei makes videos and multimedia installations that explore relations between the real world, a collective utopia and the personal aspirations of a young Chinese generation immersed in a new culture, marked by the economic boom and growing access to the Internet.
