      About:
      aaajiao, is the online handle of Xu Wenkai, a Shanghai-based new media artist, avid blogger and free thinker.

      Born in 1984 in one of China's oldest cities, Xi'an, aaajiao's art and works are marked by a strong dystopian awareness (his year of birth being the synonym of George Orwell's classic allegorical novel), literati spirits and sophistication. Many of aaajiao's works speak to new thinkings, controversies and phenomenon around the Internet, with specific projects focusing on the processing of data, the blogsphere and China's Great Fire Wall. aaajiao's recent projects extend his practice to various disciplines (among them architecture, electronic music, performance, product design, and medicine) to capture the pulse of the young generation consuming cyber technology and living in social media.
