Sirui Li

Sirui Li is a designer who is deeply attuned to the nuances of emotions and possesses a profound passion for life. She ventures into unexplored realms that often go unnoticed by the masses. Her works emanate from the depths of her being, intertwining the individual self with the collective consciousness. Through relentless observation and contemplation of these intricate connections, she incessantly questions the purpose and value of her existence. With meticulous devotion, she delves into the study of seemingly inconsequential emotions, allowing them to find expression within her creations.

Inspiration and ideas for my project, including recycled robotic arm composition and installation concepts.

Project Overview 

The project draws inspiration from electronic waste, emphasizing the significant role of electronic devices in our lives. As "producers" of e-waste, robots and Al are increasingly influential in shaping society. Their growing functionality and prevalence raise questions about how we should perceive and interact with them. Through the project, I explore recycling robot arms and designing robot devices, gloves, and costumes. This prompts reflection on our attitudes towards Al and robots and their impact on us. While the future of Al and robots is uncertain, contemplating our relationship with them allows us to address relevant issues for our future existence. Al and robots mirror our self-worth, reflecting our thoughts, expectations, and perceptions within the realm of technology and innovation.
