Mia Forrest is an Australian artist whose cinematic work explores the poetic and surreal ways of dilating time. Her work has been exhibited at Vellum LA, the AVIFF Art Festival in Cannes, the Channels International Video Art Biennial at the Australian Centre for Moving Images, the Queensland Film Festival and the Aesthetica Film Festival. In 2022, Mia released her NFT collection, Bloom II – a time-based motion project that uses slit photo imaging and time remapping to evoke new ways of seeing nature transform.
This project was presented as part of the Vellum LA X Artsy “Artists Who Code” exhibition, coinciding with Women’s History Month and NFT LA. Bloom II’s works have since been licensed by Standard Vision and Artpoint for commercial public art exhibitions. Mia’s work was recognized by the Photo Collective Australian Photography Awards in the documentary category (finalist in 2021), the Queensland Music Awards in the music video category (finalist in 2016, 2020), and was acquired by RawDAO.
