Mika Satomi is currently a researcher at The Smart Textile Design Lab at Textilehögskolan in Borås,
Sweden. Only satisfied when things are working, Mika Satomi is always looking for new ways to use any
kind of material, or bending existing techniques to her needs. She likes to find solutions for technical
and artistic problems and to share this knowledge and experiences with others.As an artist Mika poses
questions which are provoking peoples thoughts, opening their minds or twisting common views. She
holds BA in graphic design from Tokyo Zokei University, and MA in media creation from IAMAS, Japan.
Mika has been collaborating with Hannah Perner-Wilson as KOBAKANT since 2006.
