Rhonda Holberton holds an MFA from Stanford University and a BFA from CCA. Her multimedia installations make use of digital and interactive technologies integrated into traditional methods of art production.  The work utilizes 3D scanning, motion capture, and AI to investigate the reciprocal influences of technology on the body and within the environment.  Her research interests frequently lead her into interdisciplinary collaborations with philosophers, engineers, futurists, choreographers, and political scientists

In 2014 Holberton was a CAMAC Artist in Residence at Marnay-sur-Seine, France, and she was awarded a Fondation Ténot Fellowship, Paris. Her work is included in the collection of SFMoMA and the McEvoy Foundation and has been exhibited at CULT | Aimee Friberg Exhibitions, FIFI Projects Mexico City; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; The Contemporary Jewish Museum (SF); Berkeley Art Center; San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art; and the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery. Holberton taught experimental media at Stanford University from 2015-2017 and is is currently Assistant Professor of Digital Media at San Jose State University. She lives and works in Oakland.
