Robin Birdd is an installation, conceptual, and new media artist of color from Oakland, California. She is also the co-founder of the art collective MACROWAVES. Drawing inspiration from childhood memories of play, discovery and trauma, Birdd explores the intimacies and feelings of rebellion and order that carry over to adulthood. Birdd creates experience based works through the use of sensory stimulation, play, digital and performance art. Her installations are object based, utilizing materials that reference mythology, family history, American culture, consumerism, colonialism and immigration. Birdd's work attempts to decolonize memories through the use of play and humor.
Birdd received her BA at San Francisco State University with an emphasis in Studio Art. She was the recent recipient of SOMArt’s 2018 - 2019 Curatorial Residency. Her last textile piece, The metamorphosis of the Butterfly-Snake was recently featured in Juxtapoz for the group show Lil Swim at the Luggage Store Gallery and her collective Macro Waves recent installation, Cortextual Voyager 3000 was featured in KQED's article "An Expanded Vision of Healing and Divine Black Femininity". Birdd is currently a Visual Arts Curator in Residence at SOMArts.
