Since graduating from the 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. She has participated in artist-in-residence programs nationally (PlySpace in Muncie IN and Main St Arts in Upstate NY) and internationally (Heima in Seyðisfjörður Iceland). Primarily working in sculpture and installation, she seeks to interact with communities, through ethnographic methods, in order to explore cultural phenomena. Hancock’s current work deals with cyberfeminism, alternative realities, mythology and how technology affects social customs.
