Yan Shao is a terrestrial artist and creative technologist based in New York. Yan’s imaginative new media works explore the uncharted territories of perception, mediating the complex interrelations between humans and the environment. Yan's artistic language draws inspiration from geopoetics, the transitory essence of nature, and the human responsibility towards ecology, resulting in a unique and evocative visual narrative. Through her photography, video and interactive installation, Yan invites viewers on a journey of discovery and reflection, exploring the depth of our connection with the earth.

Currently, Yan is an artist fellow at the Gallatin WetLab at New York University. She is a receipt of Judson-Morrissey Excellence in New Media Award and Tisch Initiative of Creative Research Fellowship. She is also a member of Femmes Designer, and has been featured in the 28th International Symposium on Electronic Art.

Yan received her Bachelor's in Geology from Yunnan University and a MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. In 2023, she completed her MPS from Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
