senseofplace LAB emerges in the interdisciplinary space of art, architecture and social engagement. It was founded as an artistic laboratory by Laura Halsey Brown in San Francisco in 2008, based on research/art in NYC and the Netherlands since 2000. senseofplace LAB develops interactive collaborative experiments that investigate the concept ‘sense of place’ and foster being ‘present in place’.

Sonja Hinrichsen examines urban and natural environments through exploration and research. Her work manifests in immersive video installations and interventions in nature. Her participatory project “Snow Drawings” engages communities worldwide. “In my artwork I examine environments – urban, industrial as well as natural environments. I am interested in the intersection between place – city or nature – and human perception and utilization thereof, throughout history.”

With the help of Abuntoo, a new fundraising platform where donors can pick rewards offered by a local business as a thank-you gift, we are launching a month-long campaign to raise $3,000 for a new project for the site, ‘A Walk Through Time’, which will combine art with an interactive narrative history of Hayes Valley.  To support the project and to receive rewards from local businesses like CityRide Bike Rentals, visit Abuntoo at www.abuntoo.io
