Li Yu is a visual artist, speculative designer, and interdisciplinary researcher.
As a visual artist, she uses explorative and symbolic painting and drawing to express the intricate connection between modern science and nature, translating thought experiments into imaginative and poetic visual expression.
In design, she researches the burgeoning areas of advanced science technology, and speculative design, she uses design to converge the fascinating intersection between our unlimited imagination and fast pacing science and technology development. She implements emerging technologies into futuristic narratives, reexamining our conventional sense of normality, and brings thought experiments into tangible forms, such as design or interactive art installation.
