Yiyang Cao (b. 1991, China) is a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary artist born and raised in Hangzhou, China. She received her BFA in Film/Animation/Video at Rhode Island School of Design. Through moving image, participatory sculptural environments, and live video performances, Yiyang’s work investigates the rhetorics of time in new media; exploring the cross-pollination between out-of-screen and in-screen time, she attempts to provoke dimensional thought on perception and our collective states of being. She utilizes a wide range of video sources in her work including analog modular synthesizers, computer-based generative programs, recorded camera footage, and motion-graphics. She has exhibited and performed in US, Japan, Mexico, Germany, Netherlands and Denmark.
