Dani Admiss is an independent curator and researcher working across art, design, and networked cultures. Her work employs co-creation and world-building to explore changes happening to our social and technological worlds. She is particularly interested in working with others to understand not yet completed transformations of body, society, and earth, into a global capitalist system.

She is currently curating a public art circuit for Walk&Talk in the Azores and consulting with Abandon Normal Devices, a roving Biennial of digital culture for their 10th-anniversary, Festival 2019. She is a Ph.D. student researcher at the faculty for New Media Art at Sunderland University, exploring world-building practices and curating world systems.
