Ani Liu is a transdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of art & science. 

A recent graduate of MIT Media Lab, she creates research-based art that explores the intersections between science, culture, & implications of emerging technologies. Her work has spanned the scales of built installations, prosthetic wearables, virtual reality immersions, to synthetic biology, as she searches for the epiphanies linking technological innovation with emotional affordance.

Ani's work has been presented at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Asian Art Museum, MIT Museum, MIT Media Lab, Wiesner Gallery, Harvard University, multiple publications, VICE,, and WIRED.  

She taught as an Associate Instructor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where she co-taught an advanced-level architectural studio called Architecture of Cultural Prosthetics: Tools for Communication and Expression in the Public Space with Krzysztof Wodiczko.  She has served on numerous design panels at esteemed institutions including Dartmouth College, MIT, University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University.  

Ani continually seeks to discover the unexpected, through playful experimentation, intuition, and speculative storytelling.
