«Summer In The Sunset» Collection
Sam is an artist, designer, and technologist based in San Francisco. He combines digital and traditional craft practices to create compelling and focused projects. He works in all kinds of media – ink, pencil, optical glass, music, video, photography, experimental electronics – always prioritizing how these disparate methods can come together elegantly to elicit a meaningful, emotionally rich experience. His work deals with empathy, interactivity, mythology, and the intricacies of our human perception. He incorporates aspects of meditation into his work, understanding that art has the power to facilitate a similarly heightened awareness. With these tools, he forges unexpected connections between humans and examines our relationship to the nonhuman "natural" world we inhabit. His work is intimate and subtle; this quiet closeness provides a safe pathway into unfamiliar territory. He holds a BA in "Affective Engineering" from NYU Gallatin and an MFA in Digital + Media from RISD, and has worked as a designer and creative technologist at firms across the country.
