Lily Hassioti

Visual Artist

Born in Athens, Greece, Lily Hassioti is a new media artist who works along a variety of materials and processes, creating mostly interactive installations. Graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in May 2016 with BA (Hons) in Fine Art, she was awarded the John Kinross scholarship to Florence by the Royal Scottish Academy and has been a studio holder in the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.

Her work is part of the Royal Scottish Academy collection and is currently on view in Eleftherios Venizelos Airport in Athens.

Lily looks at the social, cultural, and emotional impact that the rapid development of digital technologies has on our everyday life. As these advancements blend with our surroundings to create an unnoticeable Internet of Things, Lily discusses the artistic, emotional and ethical concerns that arise in these digitally infused environments. Lily’s work is often transitory and ephemeral, foregrounding human presence and inviting interaction in order for each piece to be complete.
