Rosa Weinberg is a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based artist and licensed architect. Her projects are grounded in research and interviews and seek to use surprise and delight to challenge assumptions and social constructs. Her work asks people to take a pause from reality. Through her installations, wearables, and her students’ work, she has explored how design can be used to express complex ideas that are experienced by the viewer rather than passively absorbed.
She is currently collaborating with Heidi Latsky Dance, creating sculptural wearables for ON DISPLAY, “a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society’s obsession with body image.” While at Pioneer Works, she will be designing kinetic wearables using digital and hand fabrication techniques for Heidi Latsky Dance and two of her performers.
