MV Carbon is a composer, and inter-disciplinary artist. Her work is comprised of video, sculptural objects, sound, hand-built circuitry, projection and performance. Her current explorations deal with communication, illusion, perceptive space, imagination, and interpretation, by way of examining the associations made through imagery and conversation in the context of contemporary culture. Experiential situations are a significant component to her work as she embraces immediacy and investigates the multifaceted layers of sensory perception. Her intention is to objectify emotion through music, costume, sound manipulation, space, and projection. MV Carbon is currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Her extensive exhibition/performance history includes Moma PS1, The Guggenheim BMW Lab, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Issue Project Room, and The Clocktower Gallery.
MV Carbon: Long Range-Order and the Telekinesisynth is made possible with support from Jerome Foundation.
