Yiou Wang is an experimental multimedia artist and game/interaction designer whose works explore nonhuman agency, mind-body relations, myth, and the environment through game, video, extended realities, BCI, painting, and immersive interactive installation. With backgrounds in social science and architecture, Yiou constructs picture-worlds in the convergence of the ancient mythology and future science fiction as dual but nonbinary modes of worldbuilding. Yiou’s research-based projects mediates artistic and technological interrogation on transhumanism and the production of biomythical cosmologies – organismal, machinic, and environmental. Yiou’s works have appeared in art festivals and galleries in the U.S, Canada, and China including SXSW.
Yiou Wang (b. 1996) is a master’s student at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, cofounder of Mixanthropy Art Tech Studio and Mimetik, and Harvard Mind Brain Behavior Fellow. Yiou holds a BS degree from Duke University and has worked in the U.S., China, Denmark, and Canada.
