Natasha Marin is a poet and interdisciplinary artist. Her work has been translated into several languages and has been showcased in exhibitions, performances and events around the world. She is a Cave Canem fellow and a Hedgebrook alum who has been published in periodicals like the Feminist Studies Journal, African American Review, and the Caribbean Writer. She received grants from Artist Trust, City of Austin and the City of Seattle for community projects involving text-based, visual, performance, and multimedia art. She is a mother of two and manages an international, new media, conceptual art project called Miko Kuro's Midnight Tea (www.mikokuro.com).
"We each come to this project for a different reason—out of curiosity or intrigue, camaraderie or a sense of adventure—despite these differences, each of us will be called upon to use talents and resources, to co-create the art ritual known as Miko Kuro’s Midnight Tea beginning at midnight on December 22, 2012 in Mumbai, India.
What we share is the desire to see and work towards an attainable goal, rather than be delayed by self-imposed or external limitations as we experiment and strive to take creative risks in our individual work. For this project, our mission is to sustain an intentional space, created in collaboration over a period of twelve hours using what technology is available."
