Sarah Groff Hennigh-Palermo is an artist, programmer, and erstwhile data designer. Her work focuses on using the digital in a manner that can transcend its squalid and militaristic roots and reach out towards the sublime. She has created data-obscured art sites, new computer languages, and hybrid nostalgia machines.
Her current focus is livecoded performances and abstract digital installations. For both, she makes use of image processing tools new and old, from the Jones frame buffer to a time-based SVG framework she developed herself.
Sarah is an alumna of the School for Poetic Computation, Recurse Center, Brown University, and NYU Tandon School of Engineering. In addition to a solo exhibition as part of Wallplay's On Canal series, she has taken part in group shows at Sonar+D, Westbeth, Day for Night, Flux Factory, and Denver Supernova.
Born in Southern California, Sarah lives and works in New York and Berlin.
