Since 2006
Works in Shanghai China

In 2007 island6 Arts Center, under the artistic direction of Thomas Charveriat & Zane Mellupe, founded Liu Dao, a collective of six Chinese artists (Yang Longhai 杨龙海, Wu Yandan 吴艳丹, Wang Dongma 王东马, Zhang Deli 张德丽, Zou Susu 邹林峰, Rose Tang 罗丝唐).
Liu Dao is an electronic and interactive art group where artists and technologists actively engage with culture, addressing the issues and concerns of our time.
Liu Dao challenges convention, encourages collaboration and celebrates the hack. Liu Dao explores the cultural potential in the convergence of art, technology and science, and their discovery is applied toward the benefit of the artist community.
Interaction is generated in the environment but also within the art pieces. The use of technology such as sensors, motion-tracking devices, GPRS modem controlled videos, sonar rangefinders or "Arduino" microcontrollers are utilized to create interactive pieces that challenge current digital interfaces and interactivity solutions and develop new forms of expression through new media technologies. Liu Dao produces interactive installations, electronic art, performance and multimedia shows in Shanghai. The curatorial program reflects new cultural roles for visual and sound art, and the confluence of tradition and technology.
island6 Arts Center promotes artists by addressing the public, supporting digital research and experimentation, developing collaborative projects with partners and contacts worldwide, and maintaining informative websites on the history and current practice of electronic art in China.

Island6 is proud to announce the opening of “Pi” on 03/21/2009 featuring conceptual artist Danamza (France) in an open collaboration with the Liu Dao Cooperative.
Danamza’s artistic creation encapsulates a magnification of principles grounded in a metaphysical investigation. For this exhibition, he has sought to investigate the parameters of sensorial perception and graphic dimensions in the creation of eighteen unique site-specific artworks intended for the Shanghai audience. Pi: Infinitude is a definition in terms of the artists’ obsessive passion and unrelenting pursuit of perfection.
