Since graduating Massachusetts College of Art with her BFA in 2016, Siena Hancock has developed an interdisciplinary practice which addresses women’s place in the internet age. Primarily working in sculpture and installation, she seeks to interact with communities in order to explore cultural phenomena. She has been an artist-in-residence at Heima in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland and Main St Arts in Upstate New York. Siena’s work has been shown in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, and abroad in Iceland. Her current work deals with cyberfeminism, alternative realities, mythology and how technology affects social customs.

Siena’s present work explores utopian feminism. She is currently an artist-in-residence at PlySpace in the city of Muncie, IN. While in residence she will conduct research utilizing an ethnographic method addressing women, feminism, and technology.
