  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

Graduate Public Practice

MFA Public Practice recent grad Tamarind Rossetti '12

Tamarind Rossetti


Tamarind Rossetti is an artist whose practice examines communication and how we place ourselves in space. Her methods respond to the fluidity of internal and external experience of humans in their relationships to each other. Interactions with nature form a foundation for perceptual responses in her work.

Her current project, Memory Loss Concatenation, 2013, works with stories from the network of memories held by those close to memory loss, particularly among aging people.

She received her MFA in Public Practice from Otis and her BA in Art and English from UC Berkeley. She received the Robert & Collen Haas grant for video and photography and the Eisner Award for Video at UC Berkeley. She worked on site-specific projects in Kathmandu, Nepal, Tijuana, Mexico and Los Angeles

Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions including the 18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica, CA; ForYourArt, Los Angeles; MorYork Gallery, Highland Park, CA; Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts, Ojai, CA; Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, CA; DIY Gallery, Pacific Design Center, Los Angeles, CA; Worth-Ryder Gallery, Berkeley, CA; Gallery PT, Hamamatsu, Japan; VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
