Carrie Mae Rose
Computational Fashion Fellow Carrie Mae Rose is a sculptor, performer and interactive installation artist creating Wearable Weapons, Agave Armor, and interactive costumes that awaken the power of vulnerability. By using materials that can create shock and deadly injury, she brings a heightened sense of caution, reverence, and pushes the boundary of fashion to the limit. Her work is built with electricity, sound sensors, open source software, hardware, confiscated scissors (weapons) from airport security, razor blades, and plant fibers.
Carrie Mae holds a M.F.A. in Design and Technology from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City and a B.A. from Prescott College in Prescott, Arizona. She studied and performed Butoh with Diego Pinon and acrobatic stilt walking with The Carpetbag Brigade Physical Theater Company. She assisted wearable artist, Latifa Medjdoub, in San Francisco and jewelry designer, Joomi Lim, in New York City. Recently in New York she has exhibited work in BETA Spaces, Devotion Gallery, and Elga Wimmer Gallery.
