Katerina Friderici was born in Bogota, Colombia and has been living in Miami since 1998. She graduated in Industrial Design from Universidad Javeriana in Bogota and the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Using LED lights, found objects, lenses and discarded materials from manufacturing processes, she creates small “worlds” that evoke a sense of wonder and reflection. As the viewer realizes there is more to see, within a fraction of a second, they smile, take their time and come closer and that is what it’s all about, finding the element of surprise. She has worked designing toys, lighting, furniture and exhibits worldwide for clients such as L’Oreal, Lighting Science, Better Things and HSN and participated with her work during Art Basel Miami Beach in 2008 at Mooi.
