Interests: Communicating meaning through emergent fields of
data mapping and sensor-driven environments.
Jiayi Young is an Assistant Professor of Design at the University of California, Davis. Her interest lies within the discipline of experimental media as it applies to the intersection of art, design, science and technology. Using a dynamic combination of materials, methods, concepts and subjects, she creates experiences and environments that allow for the virtual to inform the actual and vise versa. As an artist and designer, her current research and creative work is focused in the emergent fields of data mapping and sensor-driven objects, interfaces, projections, and immersive environments. Her work has been published and exhibited nationally and internationally, including the International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA); the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA); Hall of Science, New York; the United Nation’s Fourth Conference on Women, Beijing, China; the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; and Moltkerei Werkstatt, Cologne, Germany.
