Since his first birth in 1990, Rui Hu has often thought about issues related to time and temporality from a multitude of perspectives, such as causation, prediction, choice, and language. Later, he would use text, video, installation, and virtual simulation to cope with this. He recently received the Best Experimental Animation Award at the 60th Ann Arbor Film Festival, a Jury Special Mention at the 25FPS Festival Croatia, and was a finalist of the ifva Award from the Hong Kong Arts Centre. His work has been shown in exhibitions and screenings at art spaces, institutions, and film festivals, including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Ann Arbor Film Festival, ISEA, Images Festival at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Videotage Hong Kong, among others. He received an MFA in media arts from the University of California, Los Angeles and a BFA in film from New York University, and currently teaches at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou).
