Bio 

Ying Miao 苗颖 is a new media artist who currently resides on The Internet, Chinese Internet (the GFW) and her Smartphone.  In real life, she is based mostly in Beijing, China.

In 2007, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the New Media Arts department of the China Academy of Fine Arts. In 2009, she received her MFA from the School of Art and Design at Alfred University, with a focus in Electronic Integrated Arts. 

She has been focusing on Internet Art with an emphasis on the Chinese Internet since 2007, when she made, The Blind Spot (words censored from google.cn), shown in the Western New York Biannual. Her works have a strong awareness of the ever-changing technology of our time, the relationship of body and machine and reality versus simulation. 

Utilizing experimental formats; such as GIF, APPs and Second Life, the artist seeks to find an icon for the Internet Age. Ying Miao explores in a humorous way, the visual language born from the Internet, and it's effect on how it changes us as we interact with it.

She has shown her gifs, videos, digital prints, artist books and interactive installations in Mainland China, Taiwan, Europe, the United States and in the virtual world of Second Life. 

苗颖是一位居住在因特网,局域网和她的智能手机上的网络艺术家。苗颖尝试探讨这个媒介的各种可能性,以此来关注日益改变我们生活的网络。

她2007年学士毕业于中国美术学院新媒体系,2009年硕士毕业于纽约州立大学阿尔弗莱德艺术设计学院电子综合艺术专业。她自2007年的作品“盲区”开始(google.cn屏蔽词汇字典,后于纽约西州双年展中展出),就开始专注于网络艺术,特别是其土生土长的中国网络。她对于正在改变我们时代的媒体,身体与机器以及现实与仿真之间的关系非常敏感。

作为一位不断探索新的艺术形式的实验者,她尝试用gif,平板软件,在线游戏第二人生等媒介试图为网络时代寻找一个图标,并常以幽默的方式来表示无奈和戏虐,这种轻松的力量正来自于网络语境的平民与自由,让人脑洞大开.

她先后在中国大陆,台湾,欧洲,美国以及在线虚拟世界第二人生中展出过她得录
