Rosalie Yu (Taiwan/USA) in her work explores the practice of reciprocity between vulnerable bodies, communities and the environment. She translates these concerns into artifacts and participatory experiences. Taking a pedagogical and anthropological approach, she looks at the material and physical labour of technical processes and maps how cross-cultural concepts shape our understanding of the body.

During her residency, Rosalie will focus on ways new tools and collaborative methods enable us to defamiliarise and preserve a snippet of social and technological change.

Rosalie’s research has appeared in MIT press, Leonardo and ACM Siggraph, and was supported by the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Columbia Journalism School, NYU ITP, ACCAD at Ohio State University, and EdLab at Teachers College, Columbia University.
