Kai Blatt is an artist and designer from Los Angeles, currently based in New York City. Her artwork explores personal and social phenomena through the lens of the built environment. As a designer, her primary interests include cities, materials, and leveraging design to address social and environmental challenges.
She earned her B.A. with Honors from Wesleyan University, where she majored in Art Studio and Biology. Her art thesis exhibition L.A. was inspired by the shifting landscape of Los Angeles and the relationships between place, history, and memory amidst recent development and re-urbanization.
In Los Angeles, she was part of the team at Metabolic Studio working on Bending the River Back Into the City, an infrastructural artwork reconnecting communities with the historic ecology and resource of the L.A. River. The project broke ground in September 2019.
She is currently looking for new opportunities to work on adapting cities for the future.
