Mu Li works with video, photography, installation and performance art. His work transcends the boundaries of the artist by broadening his personal understanding of art through the works themselves. Everyday life also plays an important role in Li’s work, in which a relationship between the environment, the general public, and the artist is established. Often, the boundaries between art and life are questioned by the artist’s personal experiences portrayed in his work.
Mu Li (born 1974, Feng County, Jiangsu Province, China) lives and works in Shanghai. He graduated from the Suzhou School of Art and Design, Suzhou, 1995 and the Academy of Art of Tsinghua University, Beijing, 2001.

Anton Cabaleiro explores the relationship between new technologies and society through digital means. His work includes the different phases of the creative process, from graphic design stages to the final audiovisual result. In his single-channel videos and video installations he mixes several techniques, such as motion graphics, animation and augmented reality, to combine real and virtual elements within the same environment. He employs concepts from landscape design, anthropology, philosophy and mass media theories to create a synthetic, clean, compact and direct work; paying special attention to how the various real and virtual layers interact with each other.
