SALLY WEBER is an independent light artist based in Oakland, California. Weber grew up in the Northeast, earning her Master of Science in Visual Studies from the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She trained with Otto Piene, Director of the Center and a founder of Group Zero, and Harriet Casdin-Silver, a pioneer artist in the development and artistic uses of optical holography.
Weber’s interest in light inspires her work using optical and digital holography, video, dimensional photography, and laser installations. Her work focuses on revealing the immediacy of the essential natural forces underlying life and the patterns that interconnect them. She has produced numerous public art installations and private commissions and has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally including the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH, The McNay Museum, San Antonio, TX, the Museo of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal, the Kunsthalle, Budapest, Hungary, and the Osthaus Museum, Hagen, Germany.
