For the fifth instalment of the algorithmic pattern talk series, Sarah, a dialogue aficianado, was joined by Alex McLean for an interview-style chat about her work and ideas — including what analog video art has taught her about approaching the digital; historic video cruft; and the perfection of imperfection. Watch the archive of the talk below:
Sarah Groff Hennigh-Palermo is an artist, programmer, and erstwhile data designer. Her work focuses on using the digital in a manner that can transcend its squalid and militaristic roots and reach out towards the sublime. She has created data-obscured art sites, new computer languages, and hybrid nostalgia machines. Computer errors are her best friends.
Sarah is an alumna of the School for Poetic Computation, Recurse Center, Brown University, and NYU Tandon School of Engineering. In addition to a solo exhibition as part of Wallplay’s On Canal series, she has taken part in group shows at Sonar+D, Westbeth, Day for Night, Flux Factory, and Denver Supernova.
