SARAH ROSALENA BRADY: COYOTES IN TWO DIRECTIONS

ART SCI CENTER + LAB

June 7, 2018, 5:00 pm

Coyotes in Two Directions is a new body of kinetic works by Sarah Rosalena Brady. The idea of shapeshifting is present in the oldest forms of totemism, shamanism and extant literature and represents our desire to create new forms. Drawing on Southwest Native American philosophy, indigenous design, and post-colonial theory, Coyotes in Two Directions examines the signifier of the shapeshifter as symbolic metaphor to create techno-hybrid forms. Shapeshifting reformation aims to understand and develop new visual languages through artificial life, post-colonialism and otherness. Emergent forms are employed through sculpture, automata, 3D printed parts of endanged species.

Sarah Rosalena Brady is a multiracial artist (Laguna Pueblo, Huichol, and Mexican) artist working in new media, sculpture, and sound based in Los Angeles. Her work explores alternative structures using digital technologies to refigure and reimagine objects under colonization. She investigates the limits of systems (mathematical, spatial, environmental) to reveal where they break down and open up to new visual and poetic forms. Her audio work focuses on generative and kinetic sound and the relationship between repetition and environment. Her work has been presented at San Francisco Cinematheque, Gray Area Art and Technology, SOMArts Cultural Center, Fylkingen (SE), Northwest Film Forum, and the deYoung Museum. She is in the MFA Design Media Arts Program at UCLA.
