About the Artist
China Blue is an internationally exhibiting and award winning, sound based visual artist whose work is inspired by both the fundamental principle that sound is energy made physical and the Chinese usage of acoustics in Feng shui to energize space. Over the past two plus decades she has discovered the voice of the iron of the Eiffel Tower and for NASA recorded the shock wave that leveled a forest in Siberia and the acoustics of Saturn’s rings. She has also transformed cricket calls, sonified firefly signals and recorded the acoustics produced by our brains. With this material she makes sculptures, forms installations and designs and leads soundwalks.
She has worked in collaboration with Dr. Seth S. Horowitz neuroscientist, space scientist and author of “The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind” and renowned composer of the T-Mobile ringtone Lance L. Massey. As a team they have discovered that innovation occurs by working together.
