Through ever-changing public exhibition and constantly promoting different ways of life experience, Rural Mix is finding a way to exchange and innovate philosophic ideas of modern world.
It is just like good movies with the hope trying to composite and remix new concepts, performances, fashions, musics and showing modes to elicit deeper understanding. The Winter Garden and Cookie House of Pastoral Art are venues to exhibit interdisciplinary arts for life in Beijing where creative activities take place. It is said that with the support of many woods, one can gain real inspiration from the noosphere.
