Professor Rigg explores local relationships through experimental forays between personal conversations, and recycled literary, documentary, and media materials. Her work in video, sound, performance, and web-based media is often public and situation or site specific. Recent projects have explored the qualities of false remembrances of political events and the opening of the long-fabled ocean route, the Northwest Passage. Recent work has been presented with the Flux Factory and Art in Odd Places in New York and Provisions Library in Washington, D.C. She is a 2009 recipient of a Washington, D.C. Arts and Humanities Council artist grant.
