Yifan was born in Nanjing, China. Before her MA (RCA) Visual Communication / Graphic Design she completed a BA in Mathematics and Statistics at Purdue University in the United States.
The idea of my research is to find a definition of the micro world and what kind of role an artist or designer should play in this process of exploration. Imagine the following scenes. The rain drops on an iron nail on the wall, and washes away the elements that form the nail, leaving a thin trace of a burnt brown line. Drugs dissolve in the water, merging with our blood and then having an affect on our body. These signs show that unseen influences are happening to us. We, as human flesh, are made up of around 7 octillion atoms, as do all other objects in the physical world. These unseen particles build up the boundary of reality and exchange their positions in the natural system. The switching circulations happen through either physical movement or chemical reaction.
In the current era of rapid developments in science and technology, how is it possible to keep up with the times and use graphics to explain these invisible details that already last for thousands of years? I pursue answers and discuss aesthetics from the interpretation of the relationship between reality and aesthetic illusions.
The work breaks traditional understanding of the relationships between human and human, the living and the non-living by translating the “invisible” particles into the visual system. Moreover, develop the idea that we are now in the era of exchanging data and information through the movement of particles.
