Carrie Chen (she/her) is an artist, educator, and community organizer based in Los Angeles. She works with CG animation, game engine simulation and projection installation to explore how digital figuration can be a poetic and multidimensional means to express ideas about hybridity, representation, time and memory. Chen’s practice involves examining non-western ontologies and narratives, while deconstructing and re-configuring her relationship to intercultural identity and ancestry.

She has exhibited internationally and received the 2024 STRP Award for Creative Technology. She has also organized numerous video art screenings with a focus on showcasing emerging media artists and experimental filmmakers. Chen has held talks at CalArts Experimental Animation, Otis College of Art and Design, and X Museum. She holds an MFA of Design Media Arts from UCLA and a Bachelor of Science double majoring in Applied Psychology and Art History from NYU.
