Lu Yang: Digital Descending


Digital Descending is an extensive monograph about Chinese new media artist, Lu Yang.

Lu Yang’s artistic practice offers a unique crossover between neuroscience and Buddhist philosophy, medical technology and body enhancement, and manga aesthetics and sci-fi fantasy. The media artist created the avatar DOKU in 2020. It has his facial features, while at the same time representing a figure that breaks free from fixed ascriptions of identity. LuYang is now taking the international art scene by storm with his technically sophisticated and aesthetically dazzling 3D animated films, video installations, and computer games. His work challenges familiar categories of thought—in particular, those relating to gender identity. Digital Descending is the first monograph by the artist to be published in Germany.
