Bio / CV

Seth Indigo Carnes is a conceptual media artist whose work explores human experience immersed in technology. His practice spans media, led by concept and process, where the path is often the destination.

Among his most iconic works is the Poetics series, a form of object-oriented poetry that began with large-scale steel and magnetic text installations. The latest iteration is an app artwork called Poetics on the iOS platform that is used in over 150 countries.

Throughout his career, Carnes has enjoyed collaborative, interdisciplinary projects, working in the past with Shepard Fairey, The Roots, and Paul Miller (DJ Spooky). and David Ellis.

Inspired by symbolic meaning and the poetics of the everyday, Carnes continues to work at the cross sections of art, technology and society.

He is currently based in New York City and the Catskills.
