Kurina Sohn is a multidisciplinary designer based in Amsterdam. Through tools and technologies such as artificial intelligence, digital fabrication, installation, and augmented reality, her creative work and conceptual research explores unknown aspects of the natural world, particularly the underwater habitats of deep-ocean marine life. The central focus of her recent series of projects has been to investigate conventional notions of nature by depicting how technology might perceive, experience, and interpret elements of the natural world.

Kurina holds a MA degree in Contextual Design from Design Academy Eindhoven and a BFA degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In addition to building her artistic practice, Kurina is a lecturer in Crossmedia design at AKI ArtEZ.
