performance art

"November 2000 performance piece in which the artist and the innards of six computer monitors soak in cold water in his bathtub (in New York). The work contemplates the increasing spiritual alienation resulting from the visual garbage generated by the technological age. It also calls into question many of the popular theories of Western scholarship on contemporary art." --Asian American Arts Centre Information Sheet for exhibition "Reappearing Exit IV"

"...confronting technology and its impact on social relationships from a developing country's fundamental human precepts" --Robert Lee, Asian American Arts Centre, 2009
