My name is Nilam.

I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, in the summer of 1994. Shortly after, my family moved to Tokyo, Japan, where I fell in love with robots. Like Ikki and Metabee, Nobita and Doraemon, I dream of the day I can meet my robot friend.

I’m an artist, designer, researcher, and forever a learner.

Because the nature of my parent’s job, I’ve called many places around the globe home growing up. I got my BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD, and I’m currently pursuing my MFA at Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, ON.

The world is my oyster, so call me wherever you need me and I will be there.
