Suki is an Oakland-based musician, composer, public artist and intermedia curator. Since 1996 she has been developing temporary public art projects that emphasize the fleeting and seek to catalyze highly personal transformations in unexpected places. Her work now focuses on the transformation of civic spaces with the ephemeral tools of light and sound, organized as collaborative, improvisational practice. She is the founder of The Illuminated Corridor, a nomadic public art project that creates creates site-specific illumination of public space by drawing on local traditions of film and live music. She curated and produced Music by the Eyeful, the San Francisco-based gallery performance series that featured inventions in visual audio. As a collaborator with Neighborhood Public Radio, she curated and presented NOVA, a culminating event of NPR’s exhibition American Life at the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
Suki is currently developing site-specific works for Oakland, San Francisco, and West Marin while collaborating with Bay Area initiatives committed to creative engagement in civic spaces.
