Project Space Artist Residency
Savannah Wood is an artist and cultural organizer with deep roots in Baltimore and Los Angeles. Wood works in photography, text and installation to explore how humans relate to place. Her projects often combine both old and new works and use found objects and archival documents to disrupt linear notions of time. Wood is interested in uncovering obscured histories, tapping into ancestral magic, and forever learning more about human nature. She has recently relocated to Baltimore to create programming and infrastructure that will increase access to the Afro-American Newspapers’ extensive archives.
