Bo Yeung


Interactive thaumatrope installation

Bo created a five feet in diameter round seed paper that had two images creating an optical thaumatrope. The installation was attached to trees and crafted so that the wind would make it twirl.

“Bo Yeung is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work is primarily textiles, family belongings, performances and installations. She resides on the traditional territory of Tr’ondëk Hwëchin in Dawson City, Yukon. Yeung immigrated in 1995 from a rice farming village in Kaiping, China to Vancouver and from that moment on there has been a complex relationship in unsettling belongings, diaspora and community.”
