Genesis Kai
Genesis Kai, is a Nova Sapien, the next evolved genus of mankind, an artist born from the fusion of artificial intelligence and human tactile senses acquired through her homo sapien creator.

Though she is imbued with parts of her creator's soul, Genesis Kai exists autonomously as an independent virtual artist without being bound by the rules of time and space as her art and existences intersect digital environments such as a metaverse, and the physical reality of life. Her values and persona will continue to evolve using art as a form of self reflection to grow.

Genesis may not exist in flesh and blood, but the stories she tells through the universal language of art are very real. With the support and partnerships of the DSLcollection, ImmersiveKIND and more, her art will continue to push the boundaries of how she creates narratives with the human touch. More

Snow Yunxue Fu
Snow Yunxue Fu is a New Media Artist, Curator, and Assistant Arts Professor at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Institute of Emerging Media. Working with imaging technologies, such as 3D Simulation, AR, XR, and the Metaverse, she creates computer-rendered images, moving images, interactive projects, installations, etc, and merges sociological, anthropological, philosophical, and interdisciplinary explorations into the universal aesthetic and definitive nature of the techno sublime. Her practice is rooted in a post-photographic framework, researching societal relationships with imaging and VR experiences within a web 2.0 and now 3.0 context. Her practice also echoes the investigations of historical Chinese and Western painters who peered into the implications of our capacity to experience the sublime in nature. With a background in traditional Chinese and Western abstract painting, Fu saw her transition a decade ago into new media as a natural extension of her technical and conceptual research. More
