Sandrine Schaefer was awarded a 2018 Project Grant from the Waltham Cultural Council in support of Pace Investigations No. 6, a yearlong performance artwork that investigates Waltham's historic role in the mass synchronization of mechanical time, considers pre-colonial understandings of time buried by Industrialization, and proposes ways time might be felt and measured in the future.
