Ani Liu is a research-based artist working at the intersection of art and science. Her work examines the reciprocal relationships between science, technology and their influence on human subjectivity, culture, and identity. With every technology and scientific development, our plastic subjectivity goes through modifications and expansions. As an artist, I live in this plasticity, exploring the impact of technology on culture and identity. Imbuing scientific processes with storytelling, narrative, and emotional expression, my work explores themes of the subconscious, longing, nostalgia, and memory– exploring in this technologically mediated age, what does it mean to be human?
