Cara Despain

Miami, FL

Cara Despain is an artist/writer/person constantly battling the existential dread that comes with getting born. She works in sculpture, video, sound and film produciton. Working through this means reading into things and coring out histories and conditions taken for granted, both coveted and uncomfortable. Born and raised in Utah, she loves directly experiencing what it means to be outside—from analog navigation to touching rocks to unearthing history and plugging these things in to complex layers of identity. She often hides darker narratives in idyllic views.
