Fu Yu and Jiang Haiqing comprise the husband and wife team that are 8gg. At the forefront of China's emerging new media art scene, their work centres on improvisation and collaboration using their own custom systems.

Recent developments of this system enable the control of a given installation or performance to be shared between the artists and the participants, 'V.I.P room' is an example of this using giant computer keyboard seats.

The acronym in the title of the work stands for 'Visual I Play'. No velvet ropes in existence here. 8gg have a clean, fresh approach to their work which aims to be playful, accessible and fun. Their VJ sets are the stuff of legend.
