Krzysztof Wodiczko is an artist renowned for his large-scale slide and video projections on architectural facades and monuments. He has realized more than eighty such public projections internationally. Since the late 1980s, his projections have involved the active participation of marginalized and estranged city residents. Wodiczko was awarded the Hiroshima Prize in 1998 for his contribution as an artist to world peace. He is also the recipient of the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture, the Georgy Kepes Award, the Katarzyna Kobro Prize, and the "Gloria Artis" Golden Medal from the Polish Ministry of Culture. He is Professor in Residence of Art, Design and the Public Domain at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. Wodiczko’s work has been the subject of numerous publications, most recently City of Refuge: A 9/11 Memorial (2010).
