Sarah Oppenheimer on Space and Light

October 27th, 2016

Artist Sarah Oppenheimer and curator René Morales talk about Sarah’s project titled S-281913 at Perez Art Museum Miami. The context for her newest work is the recently built museum designed by architects Herzog and De Meuron. Sarah’s project in the Meyerhoff Green Gallery represents a ground-breaking moment in her practice. That’s because the 'S' in the title of the work stands for 'switch.' The artist has been researching and testing the idea of an architectural “switch,” an element that intervenes in or influences how we move across and through a space. S-281913 has kinetic properties that visitors can activate. Listen to this episode to hear the ideas behind the work.
