Sarah Rosalena Balbuena-Brady is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher based in Los Angeles. Her work deconstructs technology with material interventions, creating new narratives for hybrid objects that speak on issues such as AI, aerospace technologies, and decolonial posthumanism. Hybrids function between human/nonhuman, ancient/future, biological/technological, handmade/autonomous to override power structures rooted in colonialism. They collapse binaries and borders, allowing for new opportunities in matter and digital futures on Earth or Space. She is Assistant Professor of Art at UC Santa Barbara in Computational Craft and Haptic Media. She was recently given the LACMA Art + Tech Lab Grant and the Steve Wilson Award from Leonardo, the International Society for Art, Sciences, and Technology. Her research focuses on Indigenous scholarship and mentorship in STEAM. Rosalena holds an MFA from the University of California Los Angeles in Design Media Arts. Works have been shown at Ars Electronica, deYoung Museum, Navel LA, California Nanosystems Institute,  Gray Area Art and Technology, Centro de Cultura Digital (MX), and SOMArts Cultural Center.
