Vidmina Stasiulytė is a researcher, senior lecturer, and artist whose work merges the field of radical aesthetics, sound embodiment, alternative expressions, and social inclusion. Her background is interdisciplinary—she graduated with a Bachelor in Fashion Design and continued her Master's project on Sound in Photography and Media Art at Vilnius Academy of Arts. These two later merged into a unique discourse on Sonic Fashion when doing the doctoral research. She received her Ph.D. from The Swedish School of Textiles, the University of Borås, in 2020. Vidmina's doctoral thesis “Wearing Sound: Foundations of Sonic Design” investigated the dressed body as a temporal form and sonic expression. Her Ph.D. research was granted by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 642328. Currently, Vidmina is a leading researcher of the three-year research project Sonic Fashion granted by the Swedish Research Council, No. 1500-155153. This research project is designed to explore and design new sonic textiles (year 1), investigate complex sonic expressions of the dress in relation to the body (year 2), and develop the methodological guidelines for designing the sonic expressions (year 3). The mentioned components will result in the foundations for the unique design methods and tools that could be used for educational purposes.

Currently, Vidmina works as a leader of the research project Sonic Fashion and a senior lecturer at the Swedish School of Textiles, Borås, Sweden.
