Carrie Sieh (b.1978, Los Angeles CA) is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Miami, Florida.  Her work is inspired by cultural, geographic, and economic histories; theories of mind, intersectionality, communication, and organization; geoscience; pattern, cryptology and symbolism; thought experiments; game theory; social justice movements; personal narrative, and the ways in which knowledge finds material expression. 

 

These disparate interests have been funneled into projects such as embroidered computer disks that imply a precarious future environment; experimental textiles hinting at layered histories of violence and power; and hand-manipulated photographs documenting intimate but alienated moments and spaces.  In some works, hidden meaning is added by incorporating steganography and ciphers.

Sieh received a BA with a double focus in painting and photography, from University of California at Santa Cruz, and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University in California.  She is represented by Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in Miami, FL.
