Chando Ao
b. 1990
USA / China

Born in Chongqing, China, 1990. Lives and works in New York and Shanghai. Education: Tufts University + School of Museum of Fine Arts, 2016. Recipient of The Chan Sculpture Award, 2015.

Ao’s practice focuses on making machinery works that distribute sensory experience to its confronters. In experiencing this unique sensation that the artist has created and directed, the audience simultaneously obtains a new connection to the existing world. Like learning a new language, it stimulates one's neural network and grows new synapses onto it.
