Li Yu is a visual artist, speculative designer, and interdisciplinary researcher. 

As a visual artist, she uses explorative and symbolic painting and drawing to express the intricate connection between modern science and nature, translating thought experiments into imaginative visual expression. 

In design, she researches the burgeoning areas of advanced science technology, and speculative design, she uses design to converge the fascinating intersection between our unlimited imagination and fast pacing science and technology development.  She implements emerging technologies into futuristic narratives, reexamining our conventional sense of normality, and brings thought experiments into tangible forms, such as design or interactive art installation. 

As her interests are interdisciplinary between art and science, she collaborates with scientists and engineers from various fields in order to have a profound understanding of her creation.

Her works collected in Modern Art and Design in Lausanne(MUDAC), exhibited internationally, including Milan Design Fair, Biennale Internationale du Design de Saint- Étienne, Milan Image Fair, FLUX Laboratory in Zurich and Geneva, Design Society V&A museum in Shenzhen, Shenzhen and HK Biennale, Sci-fi and urban design exhibition(Chinese Academy of Art), Sci-fi, Art and Technology (Tsinghua University Academy of art and design).

Space Seed win the Bourses du fonds cantonal d'Art Contemporain (FCAC) in the Canton of Geneva, reported on Swiss newspaper Le Temps, Wallpaper magazine. She also appears in the WIRED documentary: Shenzhen: The Silicon Valley of Hardware. 


As an interdisciplinary researcher, she collaborates with scientists and engineers from various fields including biotechnology, aerospace, AI, data science, math, and computer science.  She previously collaborates with  EPFL, CERN, MIT…etc.  She actively involved in biohacking, citizen science, Maker movement in the EU, China, and the US since 2012.
