Carrie Mae Rose is a polymath whose creative projects integrate fine art, technology, fashion, material science and mysticism. Rose's work has evolved from her Wearable Weapon sculptures series made from confiscated TSA scissors and razor blades to creating large-scale agave leaf sculptures, art prints and computational couture with 3D printed geometric forms embedded with technology. Rose is currently launching Solar Species Foundation to create poetic and practical tools for space emigrants. Currently, Rose and team are building prototype 2 of BODYCROWNS: Prototype Protection Pods that will be tested here on Earth to help support the physiology of those living in extreme environments.
She has participated in events with MoMA, Brooklyn Museum, Rockefeller Cultural Innovation Fund, Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, Microsoft Social Computing Symposium, NY Hall of Science, Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, IgniteNYC, Princeton Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department and Parsons The New School for Design. Recently in New York she has exhibited work in BETA Spaces, Devotion Gallery, Galerie Protégé, Gallery 151, Con Artist Collective, Eyebeam Art & Technology Center and an online MoMA project entitled Design & Violence.
