Shuyi Cao (b.1990, China) is a multimedia artist living and working in New York. She received an MFA (Fine Arts) from Parsons School of Design.
Cao’s practice represents her interdisciplinary inquiries into human existence in the realm of modern biology and technology. Having a background in political science, she is attuned to the political and philosophical problematics underlying different fields of knowledge production, be it art or science. Her work incorporates drawing, sculptures, sounds, and interactive installation, along with the nature of experiment.
