Biography

Wioleta Kaminska is a designer, linguist and time-based media artist, whose work integrates various methods of visual storytelling. Kaminska earned an MFA in Design from California College of the Arts, MA in Applied Linguistics from Warsaw University and BA in ESL Teaching from Gdansk University.

In her media arts practice she is interested in exploring the momentary nature of time and space. Her meditative video landscapes are both a study in perception and stillness and visual reflection on the intersection between nature, technology and culture. They have been shown internationally in art and media festivals, gallery exhibitions and conferences.

In 2017, Kaminska was an honorary artist residency at KALA Art Institute and in 2015, at Headlands Center for the Arts. In 2016, her video installation I Miss My Home, received a Curator's Choice award for its highly distinctive and imaginative response to the brief the Europeana Space, Disruptive Media project: PHOTOMEDIATIONS EDUCATION SPACE: An experiment in open and hybrid publishing. The installation is featured online and was part of the new Photomediations exhibition at the "Cultural Heritage: reuse, remake, and reimagine" conference in Berlin.

Recently, her video installations have been shown at Google's headquarters in San Francisco and KALA Art Institute in Berkeley and her photography series, The Subtle Cosmos, has been published in F-Stop Magazine.
