My name is XiaoQian, I am an artist and I create virtual persons online. For
this website I created 6 chinese virtual persons: Mu Yuming a painter,
Shaxpir a hip-hop singer, Wang Shy a ghost in a traditional garden, He
Zhengjun a carpenter working with wood and text, Yi Zhe a guest in a wedding
and myself XiaoQian.

"THE ESSENCE OF A NATION: CHINESE VIRTUAL PERSONS ON THE NET" is a 2005
commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its
Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Andy Warhol
Foundation for the Visual Arts.
XiaoQian is a Chinese artist. Her art is to create virtual persons online.
She has also designed herself as a virtual person. Her real life identity
may never be disclosed.
