Jeffrey Yip

2020 YBCA 100 Honoree

Jeffrey Yip is an interdisciplinary artist of color based out of Lisjan Ohlone Territory (Oakland) producing installations and performances that emphasize technology as a tool of creation. Interested in uniting the senses as an approach to building experiences, he combines light and sound in physical and virtual spaces. His work explores technology imagined as a means to facilitate healing as a form of radical justice, and often works collaboratively to create sustainable communities. In 2015, Jeffrey co-founded Macro Waves, a studio of designers and artists of color who specialize in producing immersive experience through conceptual art, new media, and desig​n. Jeffrey has worked with the cities of Palo Alto, Santa Clara, Napa Valley, Oakland, and San Francisco. Corporate commissions include Intel, Dolby Labs, Salesforce, Marriott, and Red Bull. Jeffrey has shown work in galleries such as The Midway Gallery, SFAC Gallery, Aggregate Space, ​Lightbox NYC​, and the Growlery.
