Yuxing’s doctoral research explores how locative media anchors and complicates what it means to be located in the world today. Specifically, she is interested in how space and spatial practices are structured and processed through media platforms. Yuxing holds a Master of Arts in Film and Media Studies from Columbia University. Her M.A. thesis, “The Spatialized Moments in Your Pocket: Space, Image, and Locative Media” probes how locative media inspires ludic behavior and shapes cities as playful spaces. Her academic interests also include automation and labor, material culture and sound theory.
