Dalena Tran (b. West Valley City, UT 1992) is an artist and filmmaker based in Los Angeles. Her work takes shape between word, moving image, installation, live performance, sculpture, sound, and software. Engaging various media forms as semiotic storytelling, she investigates the everyday confluences of language and expression; presence and immateriality; voyeurism and surveillance; urbanism and hegemony; play and pause.

She is an editor for FLAT Journal. She earned her MFA in Design Media Arts from University of California Los Angeles, and a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Media Arts at the University of Utah.

Dalena’s work has been featured at Assembly Point, STRP, O FLUXO, Adult Swim, Slamdance, and Gallery Platform LA; with audiovisual performances at New Forms Festival, MoMA PS1, & ICA London.
