From early image recording and explorations in video recording art "venues" to the recent collaborated productions with various new media of audio-visual language in the new film in contemporary artistic thought, artist Cao Fei and Yang Fudong's works share the quality of integrating the live exhibition scene into the overall audio-visuals of the film. Their work exhibited in UCCA "Breaking Forecast: 8 Key Figures of China's New Generation Artists" is such an exhibition hall work. 8 film projectors show on 8 pre-installed screens what seem to be 8 repeating segments of a short feature film. Cao Fei goes further to build a RMB City, whose interior resembles a modern cinema and is coupled with display of device and picture.

Directors have emerged to ride across modern art and experimental film making since the beginning of the noughites. They either consciously or subconsciously adopt audio-visual languages, philosophical thoughts, modern history, thoughts in contemporary art of film and the latest information technologies to voice on political issues either directly or indirectly, and in the process explore new possibilities of art via the media of film or images. Aesthetic qualities to their works are unique: they confront rotten mainstream markets and the official ideology with images, photography and films; they are not directors to make box office hits, nor are they favorites at auctions; but they are indeed explorers who look for alternative routes. They stand at on the peaks of their fields, with their art illuminating their distinctive charms, and that is the reason for the due attention they now receive.

I look at these experimentalists from various fields from a personal perspective. With the openness of dissemination, they have gone far beyond the traditional theatre and exhibition space mode and are walking between the parallel lines of film festivals and galleries. They are the ones that promote the establishment of new means of dissemination and systems of collection; some of they are also working in the media. These young artists come from the Experimental Film Studio by Liu Xuguang from Beijing Film Academy, China Academy of Art's Experimental Image Studio, Wang Shuipo Studio of Central Academy of Fine Arts. They are practitioners of the fields who place great importance on aesthetics and the audio-visual.

This is a stage where concepts extend to aesthetics. And these are artists who construct their own aesthetic worlds and integrate digital technologies with the audio-visuals of film. They have taken on the responsibilities of the output of Oriental and Chinese traditional aesthetics to the world. Despite the uneven qualities of their works, they are a group of doers who have put idealism to practice.
