Speaker Ani Liu


Ani Liu is an experimental artist working at the intersection of art & science.

A transdisciplinary thinker, she creates research-based art that explores the social, cultural & emotional implications of emerging technologies.

Sliding back and forth between making data visceral and the unknowable quantifiable, her work links technological innovation with emotional tangibility.

Ani's work has been presented internationally, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Asian Art Museum, MIT Museum, MIT Media Lab, Mana Contemporary, Harvard University, and Shenzhen Design Society. She is participating in the upcoming Queens Museum Biennial, and her work has been featured on National Geographic, VICE, Mashable, Gizmodo, LIFE (China), TED, Core77, PCMag, FOX and WIRED.

She has taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and has served on numerous design panels including Dartmouth College, MIT, University of Pennsylvania, New York University, UNC Charlotte, Syracuse University, and Harvard University. At MIT, she is on the committee of Art Scholars.

Ani continually seeks to discover the unexpected, through playful experimentation, intuition, and speculative storytelling. Her studio is based in New York City. She runs a parallel design practice at design-lab.fun.
