Sujata Majumdar is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Amsterdam and London. She has a background in the Natural Sciences, Photography, and Information Technology and the intersection and shifting boundaries of cultures and disciplines drives her artistic endeavour. She's worked in ICT in telecoms, banking and healthcare, data privacy and most recently earth observation data. She uses hybridity, engaging in dialogue, and the ease at which she can see multiple perspectives to raise awareness of underrepresented voices, such as those of her patient collaborators in Desirable Dossiers, a European Commission funded ICT-Art Connect project (2014). Woven into her artworks are a number of projects ranging from recycling education and practice for NGOs; creative re-use of water purification by-products in the Netherlands; and inspiring FabLab use in younger generations of textile artisans in Gujarat, India.
