Biography

CARMIN KARASIC

One November morning in 1994 Carmin Karasic had been listening to digital artists on NPR, and when she realized she was a digital artist trapped in a Fidelity application development manager's body. This simple realization changed her life. So she traded the glory of Corporate America high tech management for the personal satisfaction of creating digital art.

Carmin is a software engineer and digital artist focused on Internet Art. She has 19 years experience in information systems application development and in software development. In 1995 she began studying digital art at Mass College of Art. During the autumn of 1996 she was the Resident Artist for the DoWhile Studio, in Boston. During her residency, she explored many technical areas and learned to appreciate the artist’s responsibility to the community. In 1997 she started her company, Pixelyze, which specializes in web development and digital art.

Currently, she is the Director of HyperArtSpace, Boston Cyberart Festival’s online gallery, http://bostoncyberarts.org/ During the Boston Cyberarts festival she has had a number of interviews and speaking engagements, and has or will be exhibiting in group shows at the Attleboro Museum, The Bromfield Gallery, the Decordova Museum, and the Computer Museum.

She regularly collaborates with other Internet artists. She has exhibited at MIT’s List Visual Arts Center, and at the Harriet Tubman House Gallery in Boston. She also performs in collaborative online venues, including New York city's fakeshop and Austria's ARS Intertwindness. Her work is currently online in the Bath, UK based PROCESS Art-in-Progress virtual gallery, http://www.artuk.co.uk/assoc/waa.htm, featured in the US e-zine, Moondance, http://www.moondance.org/, US based artist’s collective THE sPACE, http://www.thespace.org/, and in the SWARM collaboration for Austria's ARS Electronica Infowar.
Her commissioned web art, "With Liberty and Justice for All", is featured in the British e-zine frAme. Among many other interviews and presentations, she was also recently quoted and photographed in a front page New York Times article on Hacktivism. http://www.pixelyze.com/scrapbook/articles/nyt103198/31hack.html

Born April 9, 1954, in Shirley, Massachusetts, USA, she currently lives in the Boston Metro area. Her resume contains more detail: http://www.pixelyze.com/ckresume.htm
