The Swedish School of Textile, Smart Textiles Design Lab
Mika Satomi is currently a researcher at The Smart Textile Design Lab at Textilehögskolan in Borås, Sweden. Only satisfied when things are working, Mika 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 she poses questions which are provoking peoples thoughts, opening their minds or twisting common views. Since 2006 Mika has been collaborating with Hannah Perner-Wilson, forming the collective KOBAKANT.She holds BA in graphic design from Tokyo Zokei University, and MA in media creation from IAMAS, Japan.
