In the late 90th, Halaby started experimenting with electronic art and created programs that would allow viewers to witness the process of live computerized painting. She used it to perform life with musicians.
Samia has contributed a lot to the documentation of Palestinian art of the 20th century through her work “Liberation Art of Palestine” and curated exhibitions of Palestinian Art in the US.
