Carrie Sijia Wang is an NYC-based multimedia artist, designer and creative technologist originally from Shenzhen, China. Utilizing interactive technologies and media, she tells stories and curates experiences to both provoke introspective conversations and interactions between people. The juxtaposition between the real and the fictional, the rational and the absurd is a recurring theme in her work. She believes that the fictional can serve as a mirror for the real, and the absurd can oftentimes bring out the most truthful thoughts and reactions.
With a BFA degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2012), Carrie is currently enrolled in the Interactive Telecommunications Graduate Program (ITP) at New York University (2019) with merit scholarship. Her design clients include Honeywell, Microsoft, Pivotal and Nestle Skin Health. Her work has been shown at Pier 92, Art Museum of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, New York Transit Museum, Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Spokane Public Library, CultureHub, De-Construkt Project Space, NYC Media Lab and more.
