Becoming a Citizen Architect

BY JEN STRINGER

When you're an architect you meet a lot of people who say, "I always wanted to be an architect." Jen Stringer said that and she made it so, through inspiration, disillusion, perserverance, world setbacks, and life's other surprises. The subtitle to her presentation is "my journey into a place I never knew I always wanted to be." It's a good place. We should all be so lucky.

Real to Reel

BY NINA YANKOWITZ
@ VOL 23 ON MAR 16, 2018

Artist Nina Yankowitz works with the technology of the day to highlight and challenge socio-political content since 1967, when she first exhibited her earliest draped, pleated, and sound imbued painting, “Oh Say Can You See” which disputed feminist and civil rights ethical injustices. As a ‘citizen scientist’ for over a decade, she infuses interactive technology into her environmental video projection installations to allow people to respond to options about climate change conditions and based upon their respective personal priorities, receive multiple perspectives about remediation.
