J!NN: Let’s begin with your most recent series

Li Bye-Bye: [laughing] You are more qualified to talk about me than I am!

J: Why would you say that?! [laughing]

LBB: Because you study Media Art Hystories!

J: I do! And I can say a bit about it from my perspective later, but you are the Artist in Residence here, and “Pictures of Ghosts” is an amazing new series that we need to talk about!
