Daria Dorosh, a founding member of A.I.R. Gallery, integrates traditional art with new media, fashion, and technology. Her exhibitions, such as Plays Well with Others (2004) and The Changing Room (2007) have been collaborative multimedia installations with guest participants from diverse fields.

After 36-years as a fashion design professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, NY, she became a researcher with SMARTlab, UK, and completed her thesis, Patterning: the Informatics of Art and Fashion in 2007. Fashion is a rich repository of social, historic, and personal information, which she integrates into her art practice and explores through her company, Fashion Lab in Process.

She presented her theory on pattern at two NKS Wolfram Research conferences; she is active in the arts and environmental groups in the Upper Delaware River Valley, NY, where she has her studio. In 2011 she received ArtTable’s 30th Anniversary Artist Honors Award for work that goes beyond studio practice, and her 2011 interview by Paddy Johnson Concerns from The Second Economy: Daria Dorosh on the Baby Boomer’s Relationship to Technology and Art is posted on the Art Fag City blog.

Her 20th one-person exhibition, DEEP Play: imaginary realms and comfort objects for grown-ups, (October 2012) combines digital prints and portable textile sculpture inspired by the cell phone. If text, textile, and technology all originate in the Latin root texere ‘to weave’, Deep Play is a return to beginnings, to touch, to play, to imagine, and to continue the search for new patterns.
