Karolina Ziulkoski is a new media artist from Porto Alegre, Brazil. She uses technological applications to create immersive experiences that allow for a deeper participatory exchange between stories and audiences.

Karolina’s project for the DKNY SoHo store reflects the sights and sounds of the New York City subway. A subway bench is centered in the window with curtains directly behind. A Kinect sensor tracks the movement of patrons passing on the street. When recognized, a video of a NYC subway approaching the platform plays and fans are activated. The curtains billow to reveal DKNY mannequins.
