Aparna Rao makes the kind of art that makes you go “awwwwww,” even if you are the kind of person who would never make such a noise. In today’s talk, this TED Fellow shows us a gallery of art that goes a little crazy when no one is looking, but snaps to attention when someone walks in. And a sculpture that waves maniacally to the viewer — at least until someone new steps into the room. And a stadium, created with her artistic partner Søren Pors, that is full of characters who clap in a very usual way.
Here, Rao shares with us some sketches and images of her work.
