Sarah Rosalena Brady

Sarah Rosalena 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. Her hybrid works operate between human/nonhuman, ancient/future, and handmade/autonomous principles to override power structures rooted in colonialism. In collapsing binaries and borders, her work creates new epistemologies between Earth and Space. Drawing on her multiracial background as Huichol and Laguna Pueblo, her research also focuses on Indigenous scholarship and mentorship in STEAM.

Brady is Assistant Professor of Computational Craft and Haptic Media in the Department of Art at UC Santa Barbara. She is a recipient of 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.
