In her process-based approach to image making, Wioleta Kaminska's focus is on the visual exploration of our perception of time and space, the conflicting forces that shape land and humans and on how we find ourselves caught between nature and technology, contemplation and complexity. In her work, Wioleta utilizes a wide range of media, design methods and artistic approaches. Her interest and background in linguistics, design and interior architecture naturally influence her digital storytelling. From colliding worlds -- simultaneously dirge and paean to open space and collapsing systems, to the ambiguity of perception of time and how it affects the way we view the landscapes that make up the world around us.
Her video installations have been shown at the California Academy of Sciences, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Fort Mason Center and International Contest of Contemporary Art in Lugano, Switzerland. Recently her video landscape FOG, from the series And the Whole World Stops, has been screened at Wro Media Art Biennale 2015 in Wroclaw, Poland. It has also been included in Editors' Choice for Celeste Prize 2015 and was published in Photomediations Machine. In September Wioleta will join artist in residence program 2015 at the Headlands Center for the Arts (film/video/new media).
Wioleta's professional background also includes working as a design researcher on a project for a Fortune 100 client, graphic designing, strategy consulting, project management, writing a column for SF Nature Education Newsletter, teaching English as a Second Language, curricula design, and preparing students for Cambridge ESOL exams with British Council.
