Carrie Dickason is a visual artist whose work involves the collection and accumulation of materials remaining from consumer culture. She investigates relationships between landscape, manufacturing, consumerism, and waste. A scavenger, who collects and re-organizes the excess that makes up the contemporary landscape, Dickason uses familiar materials such as plastic, rubber, foam, and carpet - in an unfamiliar way. 

Carrie holds a BFA in studio Textiles from Indiana University, Bloomington, and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI. Her work has been exhibited in Columbus and Cincinnati, OH; Detroit, MI; Jackson, WY and Toronto, Canada- in group and solo shows. In 2005 she was included in the DePauw Biennial: Contemporary Art in the Midwest, curated by Kaytie Johnson - in Greencastle, IN. In the winter of 2009 she was awarded a residency at Yaddo, in Saratoga Springs, NY.
