Carrie received her B.A. from Harvard in 2002 in Visual and Environmental Studies, where she focused on sculpture and photography. She continues to create art bridging the capabilities of computers and the creative touch of humans. Her art work explores transformations of data into objects and her digital humanities research explores the opposite––turning complex works of human expression into numbers to enable new forms of analysis and comparison. Carrie’s expertise revolves around one key research question: how and why do we use physical objects (or metaphors and virtual renderings inspired by objects in the physical world) to convey the intangible (ideas, data, and information)?
