The London-based multimedia artist Lisa Chang Lee, born in Beijing, China, is a representative example of exploring alternative identification in the context of the global health and environmental crisis. The conversation focuses on her artistic experiments with algorithms and digital technologies to transcend established norms of 'Chineseness' culturally and artistically. Gao Shiyu will investigate Lee's projects to question the binary distinctions between humans and non-humans, nature and culture, the East and the West. The discussion intends to show a shift in the new generation of diasporic Chinese artists' creative practices and challenge the tendency in contemporary Chinese art criticism that locates these works in large-scale, systemic and political ways.

This study examines the impact of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVTD-19) test accuracy (i.e., sensitivity and specificity) on the progression of the pandemic under two scenarios of limited and unlimited test capacity. We extend the classic susceptible-exposed-infectious-recovered model to incorporate test accuracy and compare the progression of the pandemic under various sensitivities and specificities. We find that high-sensitivity tests effectively reduce the total number of infections only with sufficient testing capacity. Nevertheless, with limited test capacity and a relatively high cross-infection rate, the total number of infected cases may increase when sensitivity is above a certain threshold. Despite the potential for higher sensitivity tests to identify more infected individuals, more false positive cases occur, which wastes limited testing capacity, slowing down the detection of infected cases. Our findings reveal that improving test sensitivity alone does not always lead to effective pandemic control, indicating that policymakers should balance the trade-off between high sensitivity and high false positive rates when designing containment measures for infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, particularly when navigating limited test capacity.

With the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, much of the world has been experiencing isolation and quarantine. Digital technology, especially the internet, has become the essential method of communication when social distancing measures constrain physical contact. The global health crisis leads to a dynamically increasing reliance on digital equipment contributing to a posthuman world. The article will take Shanghai-based multimedia artist Lu Yang (1984-) as a representative example to explore an alternative posthumanism subjectivity in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Built theoretically on Kathrine Hayles and Rosi Braidotti's posthumanism concepts of virtual bodies, this article will examine how Lu Yang's work articulates the interactive relationships between humans and the material world to go beyond the conservative corporeality and contribute to a renewal of posthuman subjectivity. In Lu Yang's recent projects created during the pandemic, such as Doku x The 1975 'Playing on My Mind' (2020) and the live-streamed piece Delusional World specialIntscript the artist experiments with different strategies to break down social-cultural constraints and transcend established dualisms of gender binaries, life and death, human and non-human. With a close investiga-tion of Lu Yang's multidisciplinary artistic practices, this article intends to argue how a new subjectivity emerges in contemporary Chinese art and its roles in the current COVID-19 pandemic world.
