Aparna Rao: High-Tech Art

Artist and TED Fellow Aparna Rao re-imagines the familiar in surprising, often humorous ways. With her collaborator Soren Pors, Rao creates high-tech art installations -- a typewriter that sends emails, a camera that tracks you through the room only to make you invisible on screen -- that put a playful spin on ordinary objects and interactions.

"We work with a lot of technology, but we don't love technology because we spend years and years on it. We use it because we're interested in the way it can help us to express the emotions and behavioral patterns in the creatures that we create."
