Ka'aloa is a video/new media artist
currently residing in New York. Her work in
2003, The Listening Pillow, an interactive
video bed installation where users navigate through
an anonymous dreamer’s dreams via head movements
on a pillow, has gained her the honor of being recognized
as one of "The New Leonardos" in presentation
of The NY Digital Salon 2003. She has exhibited
her video and audio works in NY venues such as Remote
Lounge & Engine 27, as well as, festivals.
A prior career as a visual artist and butoh dancer (Iona

performances in Hawaii, Los Angeles and internationally.
Her video work strives to address technological issues
concerning the body, identity/Otherness and performance.
