    Kasia Molga has refused to be labelled – design fusionist, artist, environmentalist, creative coder, she is driven by a curiosity of how design, science and technology intersect and how art can reveal stories embedded in those intersections. Predominantly focusing on the ever-changing human relation to and perception of natural environments and more than human fellow “earthlings”. For over two decades Kasia has sought ways of conveying the notion of collaboration with nature.

    Kasia is a founder and director of Studio Molga Ltd, where, aside from her art practice, she heads a team of creative technologists and architects delivering socially engaged commissions and educational projects.
    Her work is exhibited worldwide, most notably: Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, V&A Museum, Ars Electronica, Meta.Morf (NO), Translife Media Arts Triennial (Beijing, China), MIS (Sao Paulo, BR), Dutch Design Week (NL); and is a recipient of many international awards, grants and residencies, including: STARTS EU Residency.


    Kasia Molgais 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), Sao Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (Brazil), ), BBC Short Film Festival or (UK)  Design Mai (Berlin).
