bod's work is focused on "the blurring division between art and life in the digital society and network culture." Most recent focus has been on sound artworks, but in the past bod produced as a typographer and a photographer.

bod shows come as bundled option of hyper reality visuals from @flufflord.

"Built upon models seen in underground music as well as institutional art, the synthesized work of Tea Strazicic (Flufflord) and Nick Zhu (bod [包家巷]) is live coordination between imagery and sound. An intimate relationship is compiled between both aspects of the primary sensory impact of technology in order to publicly study and reveal aspects of the artists and their relationship to each other as well as digitalism."

- Supynes Festival

bod talks inspiringly and engagingly about their/art in general, on platforms across the spectrum. bod's philosophies tend towards approaches of conceptual art which translates to a vivid, hyper colour and generous sensory experience.

bod uses multiple similar pseudonyms across their output, and is focused on performative sound works right now, though continues to maintain several online visual platforms for digital/web art.

Previous releases on Quantum Natives and ZOOM LENS have spawned interesting press, here's an excellent feature in Rhizome. They contributed to MD James' Astral Planes release: https://astralplanerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/5-year-lapse.

So far this year they played Supynes, Creepy Teepy and various club spots.

Live: 

November 30 Bologna at Atelier Si for Ombre Lunghe.
