Daria, a Russian-American media artist, explores generational trauma and personal storytelling through her visual works for performances. Central to her approach is the intersection of personal storytelling with visual narratives. Trauma acts as a potent catalyst for connection, deepening understanding and breaking silence. Through the combination of storytelling and collective sensory experiences, Daria aims to demonstrate how shared narratives and immersive art can transcend boundaries.

Daria's exploration of visual storytelling extends to educational technology research, where she develops frameworks for collaborative creative practices. She boasts over ten years of experience guiding individuals through visual storytelling and media literacy. Daria is an AP Art and Design instructor in California, guiding creatives and professionals, and is an instructional design technologist at Mills College, Northeastern University.
