In her book, Studio Life, writer and photographer Sarah Trigg documents the studio practices of artists across America, highlighting the spaces, objects, and rituals that inform the artistic process.
Ann Fensterstock is the author of the book Art On The Block. The book charts the history of the New York art world over the last sixty years. Unlike other cultural and business districts in New York, the hub of the art scene has had a tendency to pick up and move. Over the last six decades artists and galleries have moved from uptown to downtown, spread across lower Manhattan, and set up shop across the East River in Brooklyn. Art on the Block tells the story of this migration and explores why the art world doesn't stay put.
In 2009 artist and writer Sarah Trigg set out across the country to document the studio practices of working artists in America. At each stop Sarah asked artists to share stories about the important objects, rituals and tools that define their workspace and aid in the process of art making. Sarah's findings have just been published in a new book called Studio Life: Rituals, collection tools and observations on the artistic process.

Syd Mead might have one of the coolest jobs on the planet. He's a visual futurist, and it's his job is to imagine what the future will look like and to paint it. Companies like Ford and Phillips Electronics have turned to Syd to illustrate future visualizations their products, ones that might not even be possible to build yet. In the 1980s Ridley Scott asked Syd to work on concept designs for his famous sci-fi noir film Blade Runner. And after that film Syd went on to work on designs for TRON, James Cameron's Aliens, Mission Impossible 3 and more.
