Rosalynn Rothstein holds a Master’s degree in Folklore from the University of Oregon. Throughout her course of study she was employed as a senior 9-1-1 dispatcher at the Bureau of Emergency Communication where she completed her thesis on multi-modal communication, focussing on evolving modes of cross-platform narrative production in a predominantly female workplace. Rothstein and her partner create large-scale interactive installations utilizing re-used materials, such as glass traffic lights and industrial zippers. Rosalynn and her two collaborators, Adam Rothstein and Carl Diehl, were recently awarded a Precipice Fund grant from the Portland (Oregon) Institute of Contemporary Art to run a temporary art space entitled Weird Shift Storefront.
