Mia’s work has exhibited worldwide, including Vellum LA, Tweed Regional Art Gallery, Cannes AVIFF Art Festival, Channels International Biennial of Video Art at the Australian Center for Moving Image, Queensland Film Festival, and Aesthetica Film Festival.
Mia's Bloom artworks hybridize time, technology, and nature; surreal stretching flowers bloom upward, embodying re-imagined cosmic forms and shapes, planting botanicals within a digital context using time expanding techniques. As they transform and bloom, they form a DNA-like helix structure, inviting the audience to contemplate how species morph, change, survive, and thrive over time. Her botanical arrangements immortalize the otherwise impermanent and ephemeral nature of botanicals, and re-imagine them in a digital context using digital time expanding techniques, resulting in a series of still and moving image artworks.
Mia’s work has been recognized by the Tweed Regional Art Gallery (Emerging Artist Award, 2022), Byron Art Prize (finalist, 2022), Photo Collective Australian Photography Awards (finalist 2021) and the Queensland Music Awards Music Video Category (finalist 2016, 2020).

Using slit scan and time remapping, the transformative colours and textures reveal a historic and futuristic rendering of the botanicals, illustrating a surreal morphing into a DNA-like helix structure as they bloom toward a reimagined future.
As the plants transform and mutate over time, the spectacle showcases the history of species and proposes new cosmic futures, inviting the audience to contemplate how these species morph, change, survive, and thrive over time.
