-Artist’s bio-

Yiyi Liu (b.1996) is an interdisciplinary artist primarily focused on creating in multi-/new media, game development, glitch art, CG art, motion graphics, sound design, and electronic music. His works are interactive and dynamic, employing cost-effective sensing technology to encourage audience participation and drive content generation. His passion and humor for computers and graphics are fully reflected in his digital theaters/poetry collections.

Inspired by his experiences in creative technology, Yiyi's works draw from the glitches, errors, and overloads he has encountered in digital software, which have become his expressive vocabulary. His artistic practice is informed by a playful and grotesque aesthetic, which he employs to translate his observations and emotional experiences into digital poetry.

As a visual artist, Yiyi is active in the fields of fashion and advertising as a CG director, VFX artist, and motion designer. He has collaborated extensively with the fashion magazine Wallpaper*China on multiple occasions to create novelty content that blurs the line between art and advertising.

He is currently pursuing an M.F.A. in Art and Technology department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and plans to graduate in May 2024.
