Kai Blatt is an artist and designer working at the intersections of art, architecture, and environmental intervention. Originally from Los Angeles, she is currently based in New York City and Cambridge, MA.
She received her B.A. with honors from Wesleyan University, where she majored in art studio and biology. Her art thesis was inspired by the shifting landscape of Los Angeles and the relationships between place, history, and memory amidst recent development and re-urbanization. Working across painting, textile, and mixed media, her art practice explores materiality and the built environment as markers of time and event.
As a designer, she believes in architecture as a vehicle for urban intervention to address climate change, environmental injustice, and ecological degradation. She is currently exploring these topics as a dual Master in Architecture and Master in Landscape Architecture candidate at Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
