Philosophy and the Visual Arts Salon:
Philosopher Dr Sacha Golob in conversation with the artist Kasia Molga
Spaces are limited - Registration is highly recommended.
TCCE is delighted to announce our fourth Philosophy and the Visual Arts Salon, developed in collaboration with the Philosophy Department at King’s College London.
We have been running various salons together over a number of years and, in so doing, we bring complex philosophical notions into contact with a wider public sphere. This series explores the relationship between philosophy and the visual arts and, on 26th Oct, we are pleased to present Dr Sacha Golob in conversation with artist Kasia Molga.
Kasia Molga is an fusion artist working mixing media art, interaction design, environmental science and creative coding & technology to working on the intersection of art, science, design and technology. She examines human perception and relationship with the planet/nature/environment in the increasingly technologically mediated world in a context of environmental changes and unforeseen futures. She does so by exploring various aspects of transmitting and manifesting real time environmental and biological data.
At this salon, Kasia Molga and Philosopher Dr Sacha Golob will discuss the Digital, the Immersive and the Environmental.
She is the co-founder and principal investigator of an award winning interdisciplinary collective World Wilder Lab (www.worldwilderlab.net),
She has exhibited internationally (among others: Ars Electronica 2012 (Linz, Austria), TRANSNATURAL (NL), Meta.Morf (NO), V&A (UK),, ISEA (Istanbul, Turkey), Translife Media Arts Triennial (Beijing, China), MIS (Sao Paulo, BR), Dutch Design Week (NL), MOMA (NY)) and received many international awards, grants and accolades such as Ars Electronica Honorary Mention, Wellcome Trust, Network for Innovation in Culture and Creative in Europe Award, Creative Industries NL, Creative Works London and more. Her work attracted attention of international press and has been featured in The Guardian, BBC, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Metro International to mention a few.
Prior to that Kasia has been a funding member of Open H2O (former Protei Collective), has lectured in many universities across UK and beyond, and has worked as an UX Designer and Digital Art Director for many years. She holds MA in Interdisciplinary Design Studies (Central Saint Martin College of Arts and Design).
