Born in Chicago in 1972, Andrew Au was influenced from an early age by science fiction, religion, reading and art. With each series of work he produces, he creates a working narrative that sets the parameters for the aesthetic conventions he uses. In recent series of works, he has treated memetic study as a pseudo-science, presenting cultural ideas as if they were living and evolving creatures. His works also challenge the notions of design being evident in lifeforms through a series of life products that will be evolved, rather than designed. He teaches foundation studies at Miami University at Middletown, OH, and maintains a studio with his wife in Cincinnati.
