China Blue is an internationally exhibiting artist who is interested in how sound shapes space. She uses sound to create environments, and sees it as energy that is either located in a specific area or energy that totally fills a room. Her work has included such diverse pieces as an ambient sound meditation rooms for a city wide exhibition of her work in Dijon, France, an immersive auditory version of a ping pong game, where the listener had the ball flying through their head-space, Meditation Trees with mantra-playing speakers embedded in the leaves, and a multidimensional audio recording of the Eiffel Tower (work in progress). Her interest in sound is of the human sensory experience of a locale, and is built on the concept that audio space is filled and shaped by those who live in it and use it. She has had shows in Sweden, Finland, France and the United States. She has been reviewed by New York Times, Art in America, Art Forum, artCritical, NY Arts to name a few. She has been interviewed by France 3 (TV), was featured in the film “Com-mu-nity” for American Society of Architecture and was an invited artist for the Acoustic Society of America. She is a Visiting Fellow at Brown University and teaches a course there in Sound Art.

“Blue succeeded in encouraging viewers to investigate the energetic and diverse content of the gallery – which in this case was twittery, and a little bit literary.”
