Hi. I’m Sarah Brin. I’m a writer, curator and public speaker. I live in Copenhagen, where I’m currently working on the GIFT Project. I was the first person ever to put a bandana on a Golden Retriever.

I have an M.A. in Art and Curatorial Practice from the University of Southern California and a B.A. in European Cultural Studies from Brandeis University. Some of my research interests include new media, artist-made games, digital fabrication, public spaces, and participation.

I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with institutions like the SFMOMA, MOCABabycastles, The Armand Hammer Museum, UCLA, LACE, Machine Project, 826LA and many others.

I’m currently working on an EU-funded PhD project. I’m collaborating with ten museums and working with them to implement playful strategies to help visitors engage with exhibition content. Before that, I worked as the Public Programs Manager at Autodesk’s Pier 9 Workshop in San Francisco, where I curated and commission projects with artists in residence and other creative projects partners. That’s where I co-founded the Experimental Research Lab, an interdisciplinary fellowship focused on meaningful applications of technology.

Sometimes I give talks or do consulting for companies looking to do creative things. Here’s my resume. You can ask me more about that here, or receive infrequent updates on my projects by signing up here. You can also find me on Tumblr, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
