Connie Bakshi is an artist based in Los Angeles, trained as a classical pianist and biomedical engineer. Working predominantly with artificial intelligence, she probes postcolonial narratives that emerge on the boundaries between the synthetic and organic, material and immaterial, the human and nonhuman. Her works often recode language, lore, and ritual to invoke the unspoken memories and desires of a collective consciousness.
Her accolades include the Red Dot: Best of the Best Award for Concept Design and the International Takifuji Arts Award. She has spoken and exhibited at FEMGEN at Art Basel Miami, VellumLA, MoCDA, NFCastle, The NFT Gallery in London, and Salone Satellite in Milan. She is an alumna of the VerticalCrypto Art Residency and NEW INC, the New Museum’s incubator for art, technology, and design. Connie holds degrees from Duke University and ArtCenter College of Design.
She is descended from the ancestral shamans of Taiwan.
