Stephanie Elyse Sherman is an art and design director, curator, producer, and writer. Her projects take shape as systems, stories, and strategies that reorganize material, social, and cognitive surplus to transform outmoded outlets of consumption into collaborative platforms for interdisciplinary production.

Her proclivities include abandoned spaces, street and media art, techno-futures and all things transportation, and she now works at the intersection of social and speculative design to turn impossible visions into reality.

Sherman has founded and directed organizations like Elsewhere, a museum and residency in a three-story former thrift store in Greensboro, North Carolina; Kulturpark, a research activation of an abandoned amusement park in Berlin; and Save Starlight, a revitalization of an outmoded amphitheater in San Diego. She most recently served as co-founder and co-director of Common Field, a national network of artist-run organizations with startup support from the Andy Warhol Foundation, and currently is a producer at Radioee, a nomadic, multilingual, online radio station.

She holds a BA in English literature from the University of Pennsylvania, an MA in critical theory and visual studies from Duke, and is completing a PhD in art and design at the University of California, San Diego. She travels incessantly and currently calls London home. She believes there is an art to everything.
