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 experience with others. As an artist Mika poses questions that provoke people’s thoughts, open their minds or twist common views. She holds a BA in Graphic Design from Tokyo Zokei University, and an MA in Media Creation from IAMAS, Japan. She has been a researcher at The Smart Textile Design Lab at Textilehögskolan in Borås, Sweden from 2010-2012. Currently she is a guest professor at eLab, Weissensee Academy of Art Berlin.
