Here is a bit more about Sarah:

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, handmade/autonomous to override power structures rooted in colonialism. They collapse binaries and borders, creating new epistemologies between Earth and 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, the Steve Wilson Award from Leonardo, the International Society for Art, Sciences, and Technology, and the Craft Futures Grant from Center for Craft. Her research focuses on Indigenous scholarship and mentorship in STEAM, she is multiracial Huichol and Laguna Pueblo. She has shown work at places such as the de Young Museum, Navel, New Wight Gallery, Ars Electronica, SOMArts Cultural Center, and Gray Area Art and Technology.

The [DIAP] program is a graduate program in studio art practice in the Art Department at the City College of New York. The [DIAP] MFA is a research-oriented community in which students engage with aspects related to digital media art. The program’s central focus is a utilization and critical engagement of digital media that can lead to research into areas as diverse as interactive sculpture, movement, performance, cyber gender, non-narrative motion graphics, photography, online privacy, online/offline interventions, printing, spatial mapping, drawing, digital cultures, painting or digital fabrication and is supportive of different models of individual or collaborative art practice.
