Meet Sabrina Dorsainvil!

Join us for her slide talk, one of the ten featured presentations that make up Elisa H. Hamilton's new communal storytelling and photography project "Slideshow."

The event is free but reservations are required - reserve your seat here.

Produced in conjunction with HUBWeek, "Slideshow" is using the original slideshow format and tangible analog slides and invites HUBweek participants to share in the day-to-day work, family life, and social context of each woman. 

Sabrina is fascinated by people: the way they move, speak, touch, interact and experience objects, environments and each other. She brings this lens to her work as a designer and illustrator; from playful drawings to projects centered around the experience of being human, Sabrina’s work aims to improve the practice of everyday life by working to addressing complex issues we face daily within areas like housing and healthcare or social and emotional well-being. She has worked with international and local community-based organizations, non-profits, large institutions and startups on issues regarding social, spatial and environmental justice. Sabrina currently works for City of Boston as a Civic Designer with the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics. She holds a BFA in Industrial Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and an MS in Design and Urban Ecologies from Parsons the New School.

Taking place in and around a shipping container located in the HUB at City Hall Plaza, Slideshow will create a community viewing and conversation space. The eleven slide presentations, created by the women along with one by the artist, will take place at the container between October 12 and 15. When not activated with a slide talk, the shipping container will be a place for the public to touch, hold, and examine the women's slides together on a communal light table with a magnifying loupe
