Carrie Ida's research inquiries with the social sciences, digital media, and material culture are the foundation of her investigation with interdisciplinary practice. Digital Media and borrowing methods are not for the singular act of forming an "art" object. Research and experiences concerned with contemporary projects are maintained and archived by text, visual documentation and employing the Internet as an open source platform.
Carrie Ida's focus with these inquiries can be seen in her current projects and writings. She was a 2015 opinion columnist for Anthropology News with her column entitled Crossing Disciplines: Art and Anthropology. As a participatory element, her public raffle concept was included in the Spring 2016 On the Line program. On the Line is part of the University of California, Riverside and the Community of Riverside programming that includes art, performance, and research to explore ecology and clotheslines. Her Collection Project was included in OUT OF CONTEXT an online exhibition curated by Heit & Haikes with a limited engagement for Philly Tech Week 2017.
