Fellow | United States Artists

Diana J. Nucera, a.k.a. “Mother Cyborg,” is a multimedia artist who uses music, performance, DIY publishing, community organizing tactics and popular education methods to elevate collective technological consciousness and agency. Nucera’s art draws from and includes 13 years of community organizing work in Detroit, Michigan, during which time she wrote guides and devised organizing models to fight digital redlining by teaching residents in low-income neighborhoods to build and run their own Internet Service Providers through the Equitable Internet Initiative. Nucera is a cofounder of the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition and has produced seventeen zines, which include “Teaching Community Technology Handbook,” and “A People’s Guide to AI,” documenting her community technology practice. In 2019, she was recognized with a Kresge Arts literary fellowship, in 2020 she received the USC Annenberg Lab Civic Media Fellowship, and in 2021 she became a United States Artist Fellow in Media.
