Daria is an artist, educator and activist, and a researcher with SMARTlab at University College Dublin. In 2007, she completed her PhD thesis, ‘Patterning: The Informatics of Art and Fashion’, which put forward two sets of underlying patterns in fashion, art and digital culture. Her work integrates traditional art practice with digital media and experimental presentation. Since 1974, she has produced eighteen one-person exhibitions. She has shown at media events such as DEAF (Dutch Electronic Arts Festival) and ACM SIGGRAPH, and was published in Leonardo. She is an early feminist and co-founder of A.I.R. Gallery, NY, the first artist-run gallery in the United States to show the work of women artists (1972). She was one of ten artists honoured by ArtTable in 2011 for work that extends beyond studio practice. She studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), NY, and at the Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture. She has taught Fashion Design at FIT since 1969 and Fine Art at Parsons School of Design, NY. She brings a synthesis of art, fashion, and theory to her teaching and to her company, Fashion Lab in Process (FliP), LLC, a research environment to test new economic models for artists and designers by creating hybrids between fashion, art, and technology. Re-made in America is an example of a recent discussion she led on sustainability and technology for a diverse community of fashion professionals.
