She is currently a Master of Fine Art Sculpture candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Ruiyun was raised up in a small village in Shangdong, China. Her childhood experience in the countryside has strongly influenced her current work. Her projects consider the changes in modern social identities against the gradual loss of intimate social relationships.  Her work has been shown in several exhibitions, for instance, The Second Farewell (2015) in Beijing, and Spa and Screen (2017) in Chicago, The Dust of the World, Washed by Droplets of Dew (2018) in Japan.
