Miriam Simun

Miriam Simun makes creative disruptions: actions and objects that poke, provoke and re-imagine current systems. By any medium necessary (including performance, food, sculpture, installation and writing) she creates experiences that open up spaces of possibility, imagination and debate. Based in scientific, historical and ethnographic research, much of her work interrogates the implications of socio-technical-environmental change. Simun holds a bachelor’s degree from the London School of Economics and a master’s degree in Interactive Telecommunications from NYU.
