Susannah Sayler is an artist and co-founder of the Canary Project. For her current body of work, A History of the Future, Sayler photographed landscapes throughout the world where scientists are studying the impacts of climate change.
In exhibition, the photography is frequently combined with other elements, such as archival objects and images, research, video, and/or mixed media installation. The project has been exhibited widely in group and solo shows at Exit Art (New York City), Denver Museum of Contemporary Art-Creative Acts that Matter Program, Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse), ARTECH (Spain), Wave Hill (New York City), Harvard Graduate School of Design (Cambridge, Massachusetts), Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and others. She has upcoming exhibits at Human Resources (Los Angeles) and the Nevada Museum of Art (Reno).
In 2006, Sayler and her collaborator Edward Morris co-founded the Canary Project, which has produced projects involving more than 30 artists, scientists, writers, designers, and educators–all efforts to deepen public understanding of climate change.
In 2008-09, Sayler was a Loeb Fellow at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
