In her film La Nuit (2007), a man conjures the image of his wife as a bride dancing underwater. Inspired by Jean Vigo's lyrical 1935 film L'Atalante, Yasinsky's stop-motion animation is accompanied by an evocative score by musician Winston Rice, a frequent collaborator of the artist's. Her works have been exhibited widely, including at the UCLA Hammer Museum (2002), the Wexner Center for the Arts (2007), SculptureCenter (2007), the Zentrum für Kunstund Medien in Karlsruhe (2003), and MoMA PS1 Contemporary Art Center (2001). Yasinsky was also the recipient of a 2010 Baker Award.
