But after moving to Paris, Zhou began making art, quickly gravitating to computer-generated techniques.

“I like working with computers because I can have an idea and do it practically instantaneously,” she says. “I’m not interested in the narrative form of video art. I’m more interested in creating states of mind.

“I don’t think someone should need to have read hundreds of books to be able to understand what I’m doing,” she adds. “It should work first on an emotional level. Art doesn’t need to be ugly to mean something.”

Perhaps that’s what attracts Zhou to fashion. She has created a T-shirt for designer Gaspard Yurkievich, with whom she shares a studio.

“Don’t all the girls love fashion?” she asks. “My work is about beauty for the sake of beauty.”
