We Were Wild’s collage installations combine their own photography of the changing city with fabrics, botanical images and historical photos. They create interactive, hybrid fantasy worlds of real-life urban spaces.
Meredith Feniak experiments with both ancient and modern artistic techniques and materials. Her experience as a botanical artist and illustrator injects flora and fauna into We Were Wild’s installations.
Risa Friedman is a photographer and paper artist. She explores the built environment through a focus on architectural detail and blocks of color.
Both artists have degrees in sociology which fuel their fascination with the evolving city and the interactive elements of their work. The disintegration of their street art is as important as the creation of each piece. In indoor installations, mirrors and peep holes encourage curiosity. Meredith and Risa love to watch and learn from how people engage with their installations.
