Wioleta Kaminska is a San Francisco-based designer and media artist, whose work ranges from photography, drawings, digital graphics to film, video and animations. Her meditative video landscapes are both a study in perception and stillness and visual reflection on the intersection between nature, technology and culture.
In her process-based approach to image making, 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, Kaminska 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.
Kaminska's video installations have been shown at the California Academy of Sciences, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Fort Mason Center, International Contest of Contemporary Art in Lugano, Switzerland and the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel. 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, published in Photomediations Machine and Anti-Utopias and selected as one of the winners of London International Creative Competition (LICC), 2015. Currently Kaminska is an artist in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts (film/video/new media).
