Wei Li is a visual artist and designer currently based in San Francisco (and soon moving to Shanghai). She is also one film from being a filmmaker.

Wei explores themes of desire, fantasy and fetishism using visual, visceral and whimsical language. She manipulates the familiar and creates objects/scenarios that are “intriguingly uncomfortable”. Her works are thought experiments as well as “pranks”.

Wei holds a MFA degree from Stanford University. Her work has been featured on Wired, PSFK, The Creators ProjectDesignboom, Smithsonian, to name a few.

In the houseboat, Wei continued her research regarding the connections between machine and sexuality, and produced sketches for a new body of work. She utilized her time on the boat to expand the conceptual frameworks of her works by reading and reflecting.
