Yuli Cai

Resident Researcher, Class of 2017

Yuli Cai is an artist, technologist and also a researcher, with a simple goal, making surprising yet natural living urban spaces.

Her work focuses on merging different emotional states and cultural contexts into natural forms of expression. An intertwined but remote conversation with eastern culture rooted is a main part of her research and practice.

Her work has taken the form of kinetic sculptures, interactive installations and sometimes digital performances, where peace and purity are always the underlying message.

She is now taking her step on analysing and producing data that will give a more empathetic brain for her physical and architectural interface for the same goal, in which concrete wall and living leaves are no longer that different.
