Kasia Molga

Kasia Molga is a visual artist and interaction designer whose practice is concerned with our relationship with the planet - Buckminster-Fuller’s concept of a “Spaceship Earth”; and changes in our perception: of ourselves and our roles in the context of nature, climate, environment and community in this increasingly technologically mediated world.

She often interrogates the tension between what can be defined as “urban western bubble” and “the rest of the world” as a consequence of the rapid development of the internet, communication and social media.  She deals with the “aesthetics of interconnectedness” through which she questions whether we are conscious and ready to take a full responsibility for our actions knowing that they provoke reaction elsewhere – even very far away…
 
In her work she reaches out to technologies such as social media, data visualization, geo-locative technologies, augmented realities to create participatory interactive pieces through which she invites spectators to have a playful dialogue with an artwork. Thus the spectator becomes a co-creators himself, partially conducting his own experience and being responsible for the experience of other spectators. This part of the practice is often complemented with fine art paintings, drawings or sketches – by making them she observes and takes notes while analyzing her “escapades” around these hidden layers of our planet.
 
She exhibits worldwide - among many others in the Museum of Modern Art (NY), ICA (UK), Contemporary Arts Space Osaka (Japan), London Fashion Week (UK), São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (Brazil), BBC Short Film Festival (UK) or Design Mai (Berlin).
 
She has over 10 years experience in digital creative industry as a user experience consultant. She lectured in University of Greenwich, Westminster University, Limkowking University and was a module leader in University of Wales. She presents and publishes conference papers regularly.
 
Molga has MA in Interdisciplinary Design from Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design (London), previously studying Fine Arts and Animation in Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan (Poland).
