GIDEST Seminar with Sarah Oppenheimer
Friday, October 6, 2017 at 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
University Center, 411 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
Sarah Oppenheimer presents "FE_20171006/Dynamic Equilibrium: On Developing Degrees of Freedom"
A visual artist based in New York City, Sarah Oppenheimer creates work that spans the disciplinary boundaries between sculpture and architecture, performing architectural interventions in order to examine social constructions in the built environment and play with perceptions of space. Her sculptural interventions disrupt the architecture of the exhibition space by physically displacing the conventions of the built environment. Her calculated excisions of prototyped building planes — walls, floors, and ceilings — challenge our understanding of architectural space. Oppenheimer’s work both disorients and clarifies our physical and perceptual experience of the architecture that surrounds us.
This event is part of the bi-weekly GIDEST Seminars presented by the Graduate Institute of Design, Ethnography, & Social Thought at The New School.
