Sarah Oppenheimer

Sensitive Machine


This publication documents the four interactive artworks by New York–based artist Sarah Oppenheimer (born 1972) created for the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College in the context of her greater artistic oeuvre. With vivid and striking reproductions and insightful contributions by Tracy L. Adler, Suzanne Keen, Sarah Oppenheimer and Seph Rodney, the book explores the artist’s multifaceted approach to empathy, agency, audience and cocreation, among many other themes in her work. Oppenheimer considers the space of the museum as a site of experimentation, where visitors experience the curiosity and joy of transforming the artworks themselves. In Oppenheimer’s words, “You have to enter the temporal network in order for the work to exist.”
