China Blue is interested in how our world is built from our sensations and perceptions and how this emerging umwelt provides not only a basis for exploring the inner world of the mind, but also how technological extensions of our senses, provide a way to transcend their limits. Her work enhances the audience’s perceptual world through her investigations and explorations into bioacoustics, ultra and infrasonic sampling devices, brain wave monitoring, and robotic sensory avatars.
“China Blue (is) a forerunner in the … contemporary sound art movement.” Edward Rubin, Sculpture magazine
“China Blue’s work… has returned to the subject matter of nature in an effort to find either new meaning or create new metaphors…” Jill Conner, New York Editor, Whitehot Magazine and contributor to Art in America and Sculpture
