Yo-Yo Lin 林友友


Yo-Yo Lin 林友友 is a Taiwanese-American, interdisciplinary artist who uses animation, performance, and sound to create meditative ‘memoryscapes.’ Her recent body of work reveals and re-values the complex realities of living with invisibilized chronic illness, investigating ideologies of healing, resilience, and care. Her practice often facilitates sites for community-centered abundance, developing into physical and virtual installations, workshops, accessible nightlife parties, and artist collectives. In 2022 she debuted her multimedia performance “channels” at The Shed to a sold-out house. She taught her self-developed course “Media-making as a Healing Practice” at NYU ITP and was recently selected for the 2022 Disability Futures Fellowship and 2023 Jerome Hill Artist Fellowship for technology-centered arts. After living in Brooklyn, NY for 7 years, Yo-Yo is currently residing in Taipei, Taiwan.

Collective writing

Yo-Yo Lin 林友友

Coming to us from Taipei, Yo-Yo sends us elsewhere while bringing us back with her to the timezone of tomorrow. A dancer, media artist, and choreographer who makes multi-dimensions and realms, Lin’s amplification of energies and connections across bodies devolves the separations we are taught to abide.
