Yuan Liu is a biohacker, visual artist and filmmaker born in Beijing and now based in Brooklyn, NY. Liu came to Austin to concentrate on shooting documentaries exploring the topics of genome editing, biohacking, hacking, as well as the “hacker-mindset” and its impact on contemporary creativity. In addition to participating in MoHA’s East Austin Studio Tour Programming, Yuan conducted a enlivening yet peaceful Powerpoint presentation-as-performance and screened a series of videos she worked on as director, production designer and art director incorporating “film-hacks,” ranging from full music videos to excerpts from feature films. | Vimeo | @shuckles
