Peking-based artist Yu Honglei belongs to the young generation of Chinese artists who move with ease between digital and sculptural works. Especially the infinite number of intersections of everyday life with the digital influence the artist’s work. For like a vast proportion of people these days, he is dependent on the Internet in his daily life. What this means for him is both freedom of information and the ability to get over geographical borders.
