Darsha Hewitt makes electromechanical sound installations, drawings, videos and experimental performances with handmade audio electronics. Her artwork grows out of a curiosity for the physics of electricity and an interest in demystifying the invisible systems embedded throughout domestic technology. Her studio practice draws heavily on the techniques and processes of experimentation of early 20th century radio-craft culture.
Darsha is also an avid technologist and educator. Her do-it-yourself electronics workshops are an integral part of her discipline and are presented internationally. In 2013 she founded the DARDI_2000 Mentorship Program in partnership with The Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) in Amsterdam. Darsha lives in Germany where she teaches in the Faculty of Media at the Bauhaus University.
