Yu Mingyi is an artist, theorist and critic. Having graduated with a BA in Fine Art and History of Art from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2013, he started work towards a PhD in Film and Visual Studies at Harvard University in the fall of that year. Mingyi’s research speculates on uncertainty and aesthetic experience, as well as philosophical approaches towards theory and criticism. Recent topics of inquiry include the history of probabilistic and statistical thinking, mathematics and mysticism, modernity and the mass, media philosophy and ‘technics’, efforts at the colonization of outer space, and the ‘thermodynamic’ tradition of aesthetics (Nietzche, Bataille, Deleuze).
