Her work reveals hidden structures in our world and how they shape our lives in surprising ways.
China Blue is an award winning international artist whose current work focuses on the brain. Brainwaves of individuals, sensed through her customized EEG software, control the light and sound of an interactive sculpture and also dynamically create personal mind produced drawings. With her Cultural Connectomes she mines the history of art to illuminate unexpected relationships and to show how artistic ideas have been disseminated through societies. Over the past two decades she has created sound art works that focus on researching and developing data sonification. This has lead to discovering the hidden acoustics imbedded in the iron of the Eiffel Tower, submerged in Venice’s water or encased in NASA’s Vertical Gun chamber. This sound work is the foundation of her current focus. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Engine Institute.
