Abstract:

Sara Roberts (1955- ) is a California artist whose works have shown extensively on the West Coast and in Europe. She sometimes collaborates with her husband Palle Henckel, an engineer, to create experiments with video, sound, language, and group dynamics. This oral history interview explores Sara Roberts' creative and educational background, as she discusses how these experiences led to employment in the Bay Area film/video industry and in academia. She also discusses her early influences and her sense of herself as a female artist. During the last part of the interview, she discusses changes in the arts since the Great Recession began around 2007. Sara Roberts received her B.A. in Fine Arts from Western Washington University in 1978, where she was awarded a Ford Foundation Grant. She received her M.F.A. from California College of Arts and Crafts (now known as CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts) in Oakland, CA in 1988. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, she worked in feature film editing at Zoetrope Studios and at Lucasfilm's Skywalker Ranch (both picture and sound), on such films as The Right Stuff. She taught at San Francisco State University, in the Conceptual Design Program, from 1992-93. In 1994 she moved to the Los Angeles area to teach at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), in the New Media Program. She was the founding director of the Integrated Media Program at CalArts from 1996-2001. She received a Rockefeller Foundation Media Fellowship in 2002. She currently teaches in CalArts' Experimental Sound Practices Program.
