Xuan Ye is the prototype of many objects, one of which is a.pureapparat.us. X creates mixed media installations and performances, synthesizing language, code, sound, body, image, data, light, and time. Their work makes noises in the speculative space of sensorium, coupling it with more-than-human agencies (internet, artificial intelligence, electricity and circuitry, and non-human organisms) to experiment with meaning-becoming and world-building. X was a finalist for the 2018 Emerging Digital Artists Award and their work has been featured, exhibited, and performed internationally. For more visit the artist's website here.
