Artist Bio

Cassie Mira is an interdisciplinary artist based in Seattle, WA. She is an artist-in-residence at The Seattle Residency Project where she is exploring material and form for loaded topics. In 2018 she co-curated Failure to Con/Form, an Idea Fund Grant recipient project that held events in Houston, TX that featured transgender, genderqueer, intersex, and gender-non-conforming writers, performers, and visual artists.

Her work analyzes liminal spaces by exploring human interaction through transitional experience. Informed by research in LGBTQIA+ history and the development of modern computing, she investigates upheaval and adaptive responses of individuals and communities. Incorporating assemblages with performance, ritual, and meditative process, her work evokes curiosity, inspires contemplation, and imagines new futures.
