Rachel James is a sound-based artist whose narrative practice is rooted in an ethos of witness and collaboration. She is interested in the profundity of embarrassment as a human condition, camp, comedy, and improvisation. As a 2014 Sound Development Fellow, James will be working in Latvia and Finland. She has exhibited or performed at The Watermill Center, The Painting Gallery, SFMoma, MoMA PS1, Recess, Uniondocs, and more. As a radio documentarian she has worked with This American Life, Radiolab, and been featured by the Third Coast International Audio Festival. She co-runs The School of Making Thinking, an interdisciplinary artist residency and experimental college.
