About me

Marilia Kaisar is a multidisciplinary storyteller from Greece. She is currently based in New York, working towards her M.A in Media Studies from Pratt Institute. She holds a Diploma of Architecture (2015) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Her experimental practice is working in the intersection of space, media, art, film and interactivity. Her current research interests revolve around spatial expressions of sexuality, gender, eroticism, new media, arts, and artificial intelligence and cyborg theories.
