Carmina is an interdisciplinary artist and photographer who makes interactive spaces to instigate dialogue, connection and reflection on culture, identity, and social issues. Beginning with stories and experiences from her own life, she engages the public in conversational exchanges on themes of domestic violence, immigration, and skin color. She uses the familiarity of laundry lines, food, kitchen tables, and warm beverages to invite the public in to spaces that reference her family’s home in Mexico as well as her own home in California.
Carmina is currently an MFA candidate at San Jose State University. She has a Bachelor's in Cultural Anthropology and her photographs and artwork have been exhibited in the San Francisco Bay Area, Iran, and Mexico.
