Can Yang (b.1994) is a multidisciplinary artist and graphic designer working with a variety of media to create context-aware graphics and imagery installations.
During her studies at the RCA, she expanded her interest in the study of images, seeking to understand the ubiquitous phenomenon of anaesthetising use of over-saturated images in media. This research aims to rediscover the functionality of two-dimensional flat images by seeing the distinction between representations and what meaning the create.
Besides her individual research, Can also demonstrates her model of practice, Neobridge, through pedagogical methodologies, i.e collaborative activities, workshops and open-ended conversations.
Her previous education includes BA Graphic Design from Rhode Island School of Design (2018).
