Through the investigation of these mediums, she seeks to question the relationship of co-existing opposites and negotiate these spaces to find balanced chaos. Yee pulls tales from her personal history, lived experiences and collective memory to form speculative worlds where fluid characters come to life through the conversations of interactive bodies.
