Daria Martin (born 1973) is a contemporary American artist and filmmaker based in London since 2002. Working primarily in 16mm film, her work has been exhibited at the Hammer Museum, The New Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Martin's 16mm films address the space between disparate states of being–levels of consciousness, the internal and the external, and the body, mind, and object–working to unravel viewer's learned habits of perception. Martin's films also often explore the differences and similarities between other artistic mediums including painting, performance, dance, and sculpture. Some subjects Martin's work touches on include dreams, feminism, sensation, mythology, and mirror-touch synesthesia.
