David Ben Kay decided to leave behind his life as Microsoft's Anti-Counterfeiting Czar, and devote himself to making a home for New Media Art in China, the Yuanfen gallery in Beijing's legendary 798 art district. New Media Art combines the aesthetic experience of viewing classical art, with the immediacy of creation that is the hallmark of the digital age.
All the art I display at Yuafen has a very strong technology component to it. I look for artists who are doing things that are interesting, challenging, cutting edge and a little bit dangerous
