Architecture is a time-based art-form unfolding in different time scales; a building reveals itself by speaking to the senses as we progress through spaces, accentuated by the changing light and tactility of materials.
Stacey Sacks is a clown, a filmmaker, an activist, a visual artist and a researcher. Her diverse inter-disciplinary work experiments with different formats to reflect on whiteness and privilege and the performance of it.
