About

NY-based mixed-media artist, Jenn Cacciola is currently working on a large-scale, multi-layered tapestry piece that employs audio interviews and other recordings as a "soundtrack," to be projected from the piece during exhibitions. She is now in residency at the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture in Manhattan, conducting personal one-on-one interviews with and simultaneously creating portraits of volunteers, that will be an essential part of research for the piece. The project seeks to question how growth occurs while a person is affected by environments, decisions, circumstances, and the intersection between the self and others, using ecological/botanical metaphor for human growth in various social environments. Funds collected support the materials and advertising costs of production of this project. The piece will be exhibited in environmentally-focused spaces as well as local arts spaces.

Participants receive a print of the portrait created during their interview session.

Once registering, the participant will receive an email from the artist in order to schedule their session. The interviewee will sit down one-on-one with the artist and will be asked a series of questions relating to their personal experiences, while being drawn by the artist. The session will be recorded by audio and might be recorded by video, though the video will not be used in the final artwork. Depending on the amount of detail in responses offered by the interviewee, the entire session could range from 45 minutes - 2 hours long. The print of the portrait created during the session will not be received by the participant on the day of the interview, but will be mailed at a later date following the interview. Prints will not be shipped internationally.

Risks and challenges

Proper release forms and legal guardian permission forms are used when appropriate for each participant, complete with a full script of the interview questions and the option to specify the exclusion of particular responses in the final audio segments to be used in the artwork.
