[Briskly.] Ah! [He bends over ledger, turns the pages, finds the entry he wants, reads.] Box… thrree.. spool… five. [He raises his head and stares front. With relish.] Spool! [Pause.] Spooool!

[He takes out a spool, peers at it.] Spool five. [He lays it on table, closes box three, puts it back with the others, takes up the spool.] Box thrree, spool five.

At its simplest, I’m a maker of things.
And it feels odd to put a bio here in the third person when the rest of the site is in the first, but here it is:
Sherri Wasserman serves as Design Director for a multimedia, multi-platform (web, mobile, public art, and exhibit) cultural heritage project in the Middle East. For six years, she led strategy and digital integration for Thinc Design, an award-winning exhibition design studio. Her projects with Thinc ranged from media prototypes to large-scale institutions, and included the National September 11 Memorial Museum, Infinite Variety for the American Folk Art Museum, Rivers of Ice for the MIT Museum, and Gapminder Game with the Gapminder Foundation. Prior to joining Thinc, Wasserman worked for photographer Bruce Weber as a curator, publisher, archivist, and registrar for dozens of exhibitions and publications. Her experience also includes stints in archives, urban planning, film production, freelance design, and museum education. She holds Bachelors of Arts in both history and art history/studio arts from Oberlin College and a Masters degree in new media design from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University.
(By the way, this current site design is temporary. The logic is here.)
