About

Stairwell’s is a collaborative project founded in 2011, led by San Francisco-based artists Sarah Hotchkiss and Carey Lin. We create interactive art experiences that challenge familiar understandings of place and our everyday surroundings. Stairwell’s fosters temporary communities of curious and engaged individuals, providing opportunities for connections and changes in perspective.
