Art that will make you laugh: Sketches and behind-the-scenes images from Aparna Rao

TED Blog

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.
