Carrie Chen (she/her) is an artist based in Los Angeles. She works with CG animation, game engine simulation and installation to explore how digital figuration can be a poetic and multidimensional means to express ideas about hybridity, representation, time and memory. Spending time between the US and China, Carrie’s practice draws on non-Western ontologies and narratives while also deconstructing and reconfiguring her relationship to intercultural identity. With a transdisciplinary approach, she is interested in what she calls the “Productive Uncanny” and engages with the complexities of social behavior, digital bodies, culture and technology.
Carrie has exhibited and held talks internationally. She is a recipient of the 2024 STRP Award for Creative Technology and has been recognized as the 2024 Emerging Curator at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE). She was a resident at Gazell.iO and has held talks at X Museum, CalArts Experimental Animation and Otis College of Art and Design.
Her expanded practice involves curation, lectures, art direction, design commissions, and teaching. She is currently Creative Director at Spectra Studio, and teaches Advanced Visual Communication at USC’s Media Arts + Practice program. She is also a lecturer at Parsons Design and Technology.
Carrie holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Psychology and Art History from New York University, and an MFA in Design Media Art from the University of California, Los Angeles.
