Kurina Sohn(b. 1991) questions the means of experiencing nature through technological perspective and interpretation. She aims to investigate the current notion of nature, ponders the sublimity in contemporary digital culture, ecological issues, and subtlety of our experienced realities.

Sohn is fascinated by the recent technological developments and new possibilities to create alternative perspectives of nature. As an interdisciplinary artist and designer, her methods involve collaborating with a broad spectrum of professionals in multiple disciplines to extend and experiment with her innovative research and methodology.
