Yuxi is an interaction designer and researcher currently based in
Beijing, Shenzhen, Berlin, Edinburgh, Shanghai, Copenhagen, Oslo and Munich.
Yuxi’s trajectory as a designer has been shaped by her fascination with emerging technologies and shifting social realities. She investigates critical affordances and implications of technologies, and creates artifacts, fictions, and experiences. She is passionate about the entanglement of humans and nonhumans, the more-than-human-centeredness to design, experimental design materials and approaches, as well as new and plural perspectives in knowing and doing.
Her recent work centers around designing for, with, and by machine intelligence. She experiments with data and algorithms, explores new modes of coexistence, and creates experiential narratives that ask questions, challenge perceptions, and invite discussions.
Yuxi’s work has been featured in Vice Motherboard, designboom, Core77, BBC Radio 4, IAM Weekend, Frame Magazine to name a few. Currently, Yuxi works at Designworks, BMW Group, where she speculates about anything around future mobility and translates novel imaginings into meaningful experiences.
