(AUS - MLB) Mikaela Stafford is a self taught 3D motion graphics artist exploring themes of curiosity and joyfulness. Her animation series considers ideas of AI consciousness and often depicts thriving and abundant bio-digital environments where technology and the natural world exist harmoniously. This symbiosis is an important metaphor as we enter a new era of technological development, and we continue to face unfamiliar challenges and opportunities of a cyber-physical world.
Integrating traditional methods of photography, sculpture and lighting design into her digitally rendered 3D environments she creates vibrant and playful work. With a background in stage design, installation art and painting, Stafford’s practice is particularly interested in the intersection between physical and virtual worlds. Marrying familiar biomorphic forms with imagined environments, her digitally rendered work creates scenes without limits.
