Colleen Woolpert

Colleen Woolpert explores the meaning of vision—from visual perception itself to abstract concepts like imagination, wonder, and doubt. Motivated by her foundational experiences as an identical twin whose sister lacks depth perception, her interdisciplinary projects have involved a reappraisal of stereographs, collaborations with blind artists, and becoming an inventor. She has received grants from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA); exhibited at the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, Griffin Museum of Photography, and Schneider Gallery, among other venues; and holds a patent for her handmade exhibition stereoscope, the TwinScope Viewer, acquired internationally by collectors and institutions including the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and Stiftelsen Lillehammer Museum (Norway).
