Niki Nolin works as an artist and educator to humanize new media through creative and intuitive processes. Through collaboration, voice, experimentation and a curiosity/fascination with learning the tools to break the rules, Niki uses technology to combine image, text, motion, sound and object. Combinations intended to meander, explore, consume and create new realities that connect media and humanness in ways that convey and contain beauty and truth.
