Rosalie Yu presenter her project “Candy-Glazed Eyes of Haunted Machines”, an exploration of coin-operated children rides as objects entangled with colonial power and labour history. Through images from her personal archive, Google Street View, AR, historical data, GAN and feelings that exist at the margins of categorization, the artist reflected on her personal family history in Taiwan as well as on ideas of nostalgia, haunted aesthetics, and ownership.
Rosalie Yu is a Taipei-born artist and researcher. In her practice she explores slow rituals of quantifying and archiving. Data is her working material; she sculpt and transform it into visualizations, resin sculptures, domestic installations, and printed material. She finds something meditative about a lengthy and repetitive gathering process, which often leads her toward mysteries and uncertainties, rather than the simple, bare facts we often assign to data.
She is a Y6 member at New Museum’s NEW INC in collaboration with Rhizome. Her work has appeared in Leonardo and ACM Siggraph, and was supported by communities such as NYU Tisch’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Columbia Journalism School, ACCAD at Ohio State University, and EdLab at Teachers College, Columbia University. In Fall 2020, She participated in the science_technology_society residency program at Delfina Foundation, UK. Rosalie is currently teaching at NYU Tisch’s Collaborative Arts and ITP.
