Daria Dorosh is an artist, educator, and researcher considering the significance of art, fashion, and technology converging on the body. Fashion Lab in Process, LLC, is her research platform that aims to re-imagine economic platforms for artists, designers, and creative culture makers. She participates in hybrid networks to continue her search for new patterns driving culture.
In her article in Leonardo, “Art and Context: A Personal View”,1988, she proposed integrating public art into the Manhattan cityscape. Her independent journey through the system for access to public space framed her ability to recognize that the body has become the site for public art. In her view, the cell phone shifted the primacy of place from real estate to the body, followed by the current role of Zoom as a public/private space. 
Her PhD dissertation “Patterning: the informatics of art and fashion” 2007, was completed at SMARTlab Digital Media Institute (UEL), where she is currently adjunct faculty at University College Dublin, Ireland. Her practice-based analysis mapped two binary patterns operating in art, fashion and digital culture that indicated the ascendancy of process over product.
Daria is a co-founder and member of A.I.R. Gallery, NY, a community of self-identified women artists founded in 1972 as an alternative to mainstream art institutions that excluded women. She taught art at Parsons School of Design (1976-85) and fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology, (1969-2014) NY. 
Her presentations on sustainability, technology, and fashion include “Re-made in America”; “Take Back Your Body” at VSMM2017; “Artists Policing Data”, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, NY. ; A.I.R.+BATURU, Beijing, online; “The Scalability Project”, an online exhibition and publication.
