Authorized Ambiguity 2016 - installation view

Often inspired by current issues in science, Carrie Crane's recent work uses the tools of Knowledge Visualization (graphs, maps, and diagrams) to address issues of ambiguity and subjectivity in visual communication. Her work (from sketches to paintings to constructions) suggests maps and diagrams which are un-tethered to any particular data set. This allows the work to be a free agent upon which any number of meanings may be placed and thereby highlighting the human tendency to draw meaning in large part from personal beliefs and experience rather than from presented data.

Carrie, a practicing artist for over 25 years, lives and works in a small town in central Massachusetts and holds an MFA from Lesley University College of Art and Design.
