Madeline Schwartzman is a New York City writer, filmmaker and architect whose work explores human narratives and the human sensorium through social art, book writing, curating and experimental video making. Her book «See Yourself Sensing» (Black Dog Publishing, London, 2011) collects the work of artists, interaction designers, architects and scientists who speculate on the future of the human sensorium through wearables, devices, head gear and installations. Her forthcoming book, «See Yourself X: Human Futures Expanded» (Black Dog Press, London, November 2018), looks at the future of the human head, using fashion, design, and technology to explore how we might extend into space, plug our head in, or make it disappear altogether.
Schwartzman is a long term Adjunct Professor at Barnard College and a senior Part time Associate Teaching Professor at Parsons: the New School for Design, where she teaches architectural design, drawing, video production and time-based media. Schwartzman has received grants and awards for her work in film, sculpture and architecture, including a residency at the American Academy in Rome. Her films and videos have screened at festivals in the United States and abroad, most recently at the Ann Arbor Film Festival and an upcoming screening of her 16mm Campus Trilogy at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in New York City.
