cari ann shim sham* is a wild artist working at the intersections of dance & technology. she experiments with still & moving images, movement, sound, experiential interactive spaces & street art stickers.
she is actively engaged in the disruption of negatively addictive crowd sourced platforms that expect user generated content for free in a scheme to sell advertising to manipulate & influence its users.
as a curator she creates spaces that cultivate new ideas for sustainable arts practices. with a curation practice over a decade deep, her commitment offers free submission and innovative programming for new artists with a focus on dance film, vr, ar, xr, and interactive installation, with the recent launch during the pandemic of an online museum, the museum of wild and newfangled art, www.mowna.org.
she is honored to serve as a guide to young artists at nyu, tisch as an associate arts professor of dance & technology.
