HUSH+1 podcast – Episode 1: Ani Liu
Born out of HUSH’s weekly internal speaker series, Creative Jam, the HUSH+1 podcast is a bi-weekly platform for creativity, both in and outside of the design industry.
In the HUSH+1 podcast, HUSH systems designer Adam Kruckenberg hosts leaders from all creative walks of life – design, art, technology, architecture, fashion, engineering, fabrication, psychology, music, urban planning, and more, to discuss what they do, why they do it, and what motivates them.
Ani Liu is an internationally exhibiting research-based artist working at the intersection of art & science. Her work examines the reciprocal relationships between science, technology, and their influence on human subjectivity, culture, and identity.
Ani continually seeks to discover the unexpected, through playful experimentation, intuition, and speculative storytelling. She is passionate about integrating multidisciplinary approaches to art-making and is currently teaching at Princeton University.
