Amanda Yamasaki is a visual artist, designer and engineer working within the intersection of art and technology. Through her work, she explores the relationship of body to object by researching the implications of systems, structures, and networks of communication to contextualize both private and public spaces. This research manifests in collaborative objects and systems for inclusive civic engagements.
Yamasaki has presented works at spaces such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago, the Salone del Mobile, Milan, and Northwestern University. She has been featured on platforms such as Core77, ChicagoMag, and as a highlight from the 2017 Milan Design Week by Design Milk. Yamasaki is currently an instructor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a mentor for the Illinois Tech Global Leaders Program at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
