About Me

I animate ‘Chronic Illness’ event space in London & teach media culture studies at London universities.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

2015-2023 art residency in Holloway, London where I host a performance night Chronic Illness http://neofung.tumblr.com/chronicillness
Over thousand performers and other participants have been involved ~

2012-2014 open video studio in China: visitors surfing inside the infinity screen at my loft in a cantonese factory. http://neofung.tumblr.com/nekamathemovie
Dosens of surfers visited my Chinese video studios in Shenzhen and Guangzhou, China.

2009 - 2011 SQUATsurfing in London: virtual community of city nomads was surfing with me in (un)real spaces of abandoned London buildings - over a hundred surfers passed through my 7 squats in north London, UK.
