Tara Rose Morris is an artist of mixed Desi descent who combines her background in painting, film, and media theory to explore digital bodies as public performance and avatars of identity.

Her work exists in conversation with recent technological developments including advanced AI, the metaverse, and ubiquitous surveillance systems, questioning how these developments have revolutionized our relationships to ourselves and others.

She speaks to these themes through immersive experiences, animations, digital art, and narrative works. Her artwork has been screened as films, single-channel video installations, and live visuals for musicians including Latashá, Kilo Kish, Heno., and Mick Jenkins. Passionate about education, she has taught film and emerging creative technologies in the Bay Area and Toronto since 2013 and spearheaded the first NFT Oakland festival.
