Apr 2010 (Cohort 2)

Karin’s artistic background reads like the map of a European city, where diversity is embedded in the rich texture of its narrative. Trained as a classical stage actor at Zurich University of the Arts, she learned early on to interpret story through her body. Upon graduation from British Columbia Institute of Technology’s New Media Program, Karin has been working as a graphic designer in the film industry where she creates visuals that oscillate between hiding and revealing meaning to a wide audience. With a teaching appointment from BCIT and a focus on visual effects, she intends to unsettle the landscape of what she knows and to re-imagine new perspectives within the digital experience.
