Nicole Maloney TEDxVeniceBeach

dnj Gallery is pleased to present our good friend Nicole Maloney talking about her latest photography installation OOMO at local TEDx event Venice Beach.
Please watch the video below.

Nicole Maloney believes that our prejudices and our judgements encompass five aspects of humanity - Race, Religion, Gender, Socioeconomic Status and Sexual Orientation. Her unique approach to digital artistic installations are designed to seek out cultural understanding and peace.

Place a camera in Nicole’s hands and she will capture the truth hidden in the human soul and in the earth’s landscape. Nicole graduated with a BA in Communication Studies from UCLA in 1989 and later studied fashion at Parsons School of Design in Paris, France. After 7 years at Sony Studios, Nicole created Simul-Sports, Inc., an interactive start-up funded by Sun Microsystems. Nicole went on to create, design and produce her photographic work in her first publication entitled RARE (Daab Books, 2008) followed by two children’s books: Romeo Loves Juliet and Much Ado (2011). Nicole’s most recent installations are the OOMO Cube ( in downtown Los Angeles and her Hello Kitty: All Stacked Up sculpture (Exploring the Super Cute World of Hello Kitty worldwide traveling exhibition 2014-2018). Nicole’s OOMO Cube was awarded LA Weekly’s Best Public Art 2014 and the President’s Award from the Japanese-American National Museum.
