David Ben Kay - 康如松. I am a 20-year resident of Beijing having begun my study of China over 35 years ago in the U.S. With degrees from Brown University, The American Graduate School of International Management and UCLA Law School, I am lawyer who in private practice specialized in intellectual property. I was able to expand my interests in the creative world five years ago when I entered Microsoft China as General Counsul to lead the company’s endeavours to spread the value of creativity and innovation to both the government and the general public. At the same time, I was able to deepen my exploration of my own creative side, moving into a space at 798 where I designed and created a unique loft (www.davesfactory.com) which has now metamorphosed into the Yuanfen New Media Art Space www.yuanfenart.com. “To be able to provide the platform for art and technology to come together in this space is a dream come true for me. My passion for both art and technology has found a home. I know firsthand that art and technology can both, individually, change our lives - and when you bring them together, new worlds are created.”
