Ruth Sergel harnesses technical prowess for community engagement and social transformation. Exploding out conventional definitions of maker, subject and viewer, her projects bridge art and technology, memory and public history to create compassionate works that invite active civic engagement.
Ruth's first book, See you in the Streets! Remembering the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire through Art and Action, will be published by the University of Iowa Press in Spring 2016.
