Luca Curci – How is being an artist nowadays?
Caity Carter – I would define art as being anything that is an extension of oneself. And many people have their own definition of art, whether or not it can be put into words. Thus, being an artist nowadays is freeing in the sense that art itself is rather undefined.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
CC – Currently, I am focusing on my graduate thesis at the Basel Academy of Art and Design. My topic is “An Epistemic perspective on imagination in Graphic Design”. My aim is to analyze the combination of philosophical research in the area of epistemology, and gather empirical knowledge by demonstrating the faculty of imagination through the digital creation of graphic patterns.

LC – What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
CC- I do not have a preferred subject, however, for exhibitions I often present artwork created in the realm of digital media. I find it to be my strong suit since it incorporates my educational and professional background in area of graphic design. Yet, at times, I also prefer charcoal drawings and oil paintings where I use my hands as a means of expression to embrace different forms of creativity and ways of thinking.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
CC – Viewer suggestions and reactions enrich my art as I become aware of what the piece and/or its elements can evoke, and what each individual finds to be thought-provoking.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
CC – The work I featured in the festival was driven by and created for my own personal artistic expression.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?
CC – The concept of bringing many contemporary artists together in one festival is a culturally important and stimulating atmosphere where one can find themselves in crowded room where there exists only them and the piece they are experiencing. It has inspired and encouraged me to continue to explore my own artistic direction that I am most passionate about, where I feel the most freedom of expression, and have the most to say visually.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
CC – The organization of the event was seamless and very well done.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
CC – I very much enjoyed being a part of the Contemporary Venice exhibition and enjoy being one of the artists featured in ITSLIQUID exhibitions.
