Pau­la Bi­al­ski, known to some as “the ha­cker-whi­s­pe­rer," pri­des her­s­elf in her sharp skill of be­fri­en­ding all sorts of tech­ni­cal­ly-sav­vy nerds, which she has suc­cess­ful­ly done du­ring her eth­no­gra­phic stints with hip­pie back­pa­cker-and-couchsur­fing ha­ckers in Mon­tre­al or, more re­cent­ly, map­ping and na­vi­ga­ti­on cor­po­ra­te ha­ckers in Ber­lin. At Leu­pha­na, she can be found co-co­or­di­na­ting the Di­gi­tal Me­dia BA pro­gram whi­le at the same time tou­ring and com­po­sing with the in­cre­di­b­ly-fa­mous-in-Po­land in­die pop sen­sa­ti­on, Pau­la & Ka­rol.
