"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"i.Mirror by China Tracy (AKA: Cao Fei Second Life Documentary Film)" (2007)
"When we travel through Second Life, or when we watch i.Mirror, we inevitably project our first life into it. In fact, we bring many of the dilemmas and quandaries that we face in real life to the fore in Second Life, hoping to resolve them. Or we hope and attempt to use Second Life to decode and interpret real life."
