Host Daniela Salvioni interviews installation artist Sarah Oppenheimer in Rome where she is a fellow at the American Academy. Her revolutionary work with interior spaces has changed the meaning of the word "hole" into something more than just empty space. In this interview, Oppenheimer talks in detail about the way she maneuvers and manipulates a space to create her art that becomes both a perceptual and a social experience.
