I took the summer off from keeping up the site, so I have many updates for you. Things have been busy since May. I finished my coursework for IMA/MFA and completed my final critique. With the folks at CUP, I developed and participated in a charette on the Bronx’s Grand Concourse with high school students from Bronx High School for the Visual Arts at the Bronx Museum. This summer I worked at an arts program in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and then spent two wonderful weeks with family and friends in California.

This fall I will be teaching two course at Rutgers Newark in the Media Studies Program in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. I will also be working on my thesis for IMA/MFA, a website and video installation about people who make everyday objects in light industry or workshop settings in NYC. Please contact me at sarahnw {at} gmail [dot] com if you have any leads, comments or questions about the project. I will be working on this and other projects from our new studio in Greenpoint.

…and three project updates:

LOCATIONS & DISLOCATIONS, my postcard project about moving, will be at CONFLUX 2008 (the art and technology festival for the creative exploration of public space!) at the Center for Architecture in Manhattan, Sept. 11-14. Hope to see you there!


(Also that weekend in NYC catch my brother’s band Daniel Wright’s World Collective at their CD release at the Living Room, Sept 12 @ 9p!)

FILLMORE PLACE & COLONIAL GLASS will be at vBrooklyn at Brooklyn Polytechnic University, December 12-14, 2008.

LOOK INSIDE will be exhibited in DUMBO in a show curated by Maya Joseph-Goteiner in March 2009. I am inspired to see the piece in dialog with another group of art about war and to bring it to Brooklyn.

I plan to keep things up to date this fall, including uploading several new projects to the site. Keep in touch!
