Dejha Ti is a multi-medium immersive experience designer. What does this mean? Allow yourself the opportunity to step into one of her environments, and be aware that you may not be aware of the emotion and curiosity she magically draws into your mind and body. Her work integrates environments, physical bodies and creative technology. Sometimes art hits a psychological and emotional string inside it's viewer and Dejha is a master at this technique - bringing together light, sound, form, identity, sexuality, and feeling. I believe this understanding Dejha posses comes from a deep curiosity in humanity and universe. With eyes wide, ears open, and questions authentically asked.
Not only does she create works of art on her own, but she also collaborates with wife Ania Catherine, where Ania's body movement joins in Dejha's atmospheric creations. Those that dream of having a life where one gets to wake up and create, not only with self but with partner - here is a look at how amazing it can become.
