In response to a constantly changing world, ever searching for the next new hero to entertain us, to fill up our Twitter, Weibo, Facebook, YouTube (Tudou) pages, Yi Zhou created and wrote an animation called Unexpected Hero, which was shown at Venice Biennale. Entirely conceived in China, with its essential components' design finished and crafted in France, it reverses the process of creation and manufacturing. By finding its core intellectual creation and raison d'être in the East and being packaged in the West, it becomes something new.
