Daniel Kojta

Short bio:
Daniel Kojta is an emerging curator / new media artist. The works engage the senses, often through an interactive experience within installations, sculptures, performances and video projections.
In the tradition of Panamarenko and Bill Viola, the works call from the participants an alternating range of rational reflections and spontaneous emotions by apprehending the creative tension between subjective response and the kinaesthetic experience of philosophical ideas.
Daniel is currently curating the new media exhibition at Bathurst Regional Gallery: 'Showing Off' which will survey the media works of 18 of Australia's finest new media artists. I continue working within remote Aboriginal communities of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and far west NSW. in the development of New Media programs.
He maintains a practice within local and metropolitan galleries throughout Australia, focusing on Sydney.
