Learn, play, and explore synesthesia, the union of the senses. Carrie makes work about her own multi-sensory experiences, as well as the descriptions and studies of others. She works with one hand in the art studio and the other in the science lab, asking questions and proposing answers to both. Interactive, electronic, sculptural, and photographic pieces will be exhibited.
Carrie has presented her work at conferences of the American Synesthesia Association in Nashville, TN; the UK Synaesthesia Association in London, England; and will be traveling to Stockholm University in Sweden to present at the Towards a Science of Consciousness Conference in early May. She will continue her creative career this fall as an international artist in residence at Digital Arts Studios in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. In 2012, she will be exhibiting as part of the Synaesthesia Series at Art Laboratory Berlin in Germany.
Carrie is also active at the Burchfield Penney Art Center (1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo) this month. Stop by their auditorium on Thursday, April 7 from 3-6pm for a panel discussion of synesthesia and art. On Saturday, April 9, visit the Burchfield Penney for their weekend of free RendezBlue Celebration events, including Carrie’s 1-3pm drop-in workshop and exhibition in the Studio Classroom area.
