I am a communication designer and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of technology, design and philosophy. In my recent production I analyse and alter present digital ecosystems to set aesthetic and critical narratives that occur between reality and fiction. After years of questioning current visual cultures and their social impact, I am developing my own artistic practice to understand the politics of the contemporary digital image.

INFO






Laia Miret (born 1987, Terrassa, Spain) is a communication designer and interdisciplinary artist currently based in Barcelona. Laia is working at the intersection of technology, design and philosophy. She has obtained a Master’s degree diploma at the Royal College of Art (London, UK).

She has worked in the advertising and media industries as creative and art director. After years of questioning current digital visual cultures she decided to study and develop her own artistic practice to
understand the politics of the contemporary digital image.

In her recent production she analyses and alters present digital ecosystems to set aesthetic and critical narratives that occur between reality and fiction.

Practice and research are intertwined and complementary to each other either in her professional activities in the media and in her artistic work. In both scenarios she aims to participate in the creation of alternatives to the problematic digital paradigm we inhabit.

She believes that diverse and different relationships with technology can exist despite the hierarchical one we have at the moment, and her work is a drive to articulate such intuition.
