Dalena Tran lives in Los Angeles, CA where she writes stories and poetry and adapts them into virtual spaces. Her practice investigates nostalgic and emerging symbols of storytelling by combining language, technology, and mixed media arts. Using the palpability of digital language, she wanders between comprehension, the gift shop, and an exit wound. Her works have been featured on Flat JournalAdult SwimO FLUXO, and Nowness. Dalena has studied film, media arts, and Farsi and is currently a graduate student in Design Media Arts at UCLA.
