OLIVIA MCKAYLA ROSS ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿน is an 18 year old media ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ’ฟ artist and programmer from Queens, New York City ๐Ÿ™. She hopes to help others model ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿฟ their own practices of exploding๐Ÿ’ฅ conventional dichotomies ๐Ÿ”ณ๐Ÿ”ฒ of user vs. programmer and noise๐ŸŒซ vs. signalโšก๏ธ, while also building a framework for interrogating the faith economies that underlay electronics and communications technologies. How is faith and trust ๐Ÿคฅ distributed between users and programmer? How is faith monopolized, accumulated, recycled, exchanged, embodied, assigned and weaponized ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’” between people, systems, ideals and materials? Emboldened by her perspective as a digital native she hopes her work will encourage her fellow teens to nurture a critical ๐Ÿคจrelationship with technology.

She is a recent alum of the School for Poetic Computation and has taught at Black Girls Code, BUFU and POWRPLNT. Olivia is currently represented by talent development agency Scope of Work. Find her at cyber.doula on Instagram.
