Susan Albert was working in the fashion and textile industry here in NYC. She had moved from her homeland in the UK and was struck by the amount of disposability here in the US. After her kids were born, Susan wanted to figure out a new career path. She decided she would create artwork that spoke to the theme of sustainability and environmental impact.
Susan’s multimedia works are on display at her studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn as well as in various places like the Human Impact Institute and NYC Climate Week. A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, my favorite piece of Susan’s has to be the tablecloth she created with imagery of various pieces of trash and QR codes that can start “dinner” conversations on issues of waste.
