Areas of Research/Artistic Focus
Yamin Xu is an artist and electronics geek, working in the edge that blurs animation, coding, and electronics with an emphasis on the exploration of emerging technology and art. He strives to create and define new things, which have not been clearly perceived as art. This motivation is sustained by his rigorous art/engineering practice, which is informed by the convergence of divergent spheres of study: religion and science, privacy and surveillance, the robotic and organic. The result is in innovation, feedback to affect and expand his understanding and definition of art.
