Carrie Mae Rose is a polymath whose creative projects integrate fine art, technology, fashion, material science and meditation. Rose's work has evolved from her Wearable Weapon sculptures series made from confiscated TSA scissors and razor blades to creating agave art: large-scale agave leaf installations, art prints and Computational Couture with 3D printed geometric forms embedded with technology. Rose is the founder of Lady Mae Lab [LaMaLa], an experimental art house that uses modern science and technology as well as sacred, ancient art practices to explore healing properties of light/dark. LaMaLa is developing a series of Vibrational Bodycrown Experiments that explore how technologies and textile materials can strengthen physiological and neurological systems in our body.
Carrie Mae Rose has participated in events with Brooklyn Museum, Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, Microsoft Social Computing Symposium, Rockefeller Cultural Innovation Fund, NY Hall of Science, Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, IgniteNYC, Princeton Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department and Parsons the New School for Design. She has exhibited work in numerous galleries and museums nationally and internationally. Rose holds a B.A. from Prescott College and an M.F.A. in Design & Technology from Parsons the New School for Design.
