Ian Carstens uses the documentary, experimental, and curatorial modes to create both interiorly personal pieces as well as collaborative projects. Carstens was born along the Mississippi River valley in eastern Iowa, raised in a artistic household with potter father, a city planner mother, a makeup artist sister and a watercolorist grandmother. Carstens explores the relationship of viewer and viewed, time, multiplicity of truth, sensation and emptiness.
