Maggie Carson Romano combines photography, video and installation in query of the physicality of memory and its intrinsic connection to sensitivity and response. In her work, she pulls single elements from context to express both their strength and vulnerability. Emergent randomness powers her fleeting installations, each of which are sensitive to variables that lie beyond control. The responses of these works accumulate to form physical records through time and space. She began her studies in Fine Art at the University of Southern California and went on to earn her MFA at the University of Washington. She recently relocated from New York to Los Angeles.
