Behind the Neen Screen


Los Angeles venue Electronic Orphanage will host a presentation April 8 from 6-10 PM by Yi Zhou, a Chinese born, Italian-raised, London/Paris-based artist who has made a number of Internet-based projects. Zhou's resume, which also includes a record deal, suggests she must be traveling a lot, but she has clearly put a lot of time into her web-based animations. They are self-conscious, beautiful and delicate, and the several photos of the artist that adorn her work and accompany related announcements suggest the same of her. Electronic Orphanage events come highly recommended, and are also associated with the 'neen' scene. Curious parties should peruse the EO website, and can also check out -- Rachel Greene
