Sean Vegezzi is an artist and researcher who has examined urban topographies and infrastructures through image-making, site-specific installation, sculpture, and writing. Vegezzi's practice begins from lived experience and investigates civic life in relation to issues of autonomy, privacy, security, carcerality, and policing.
Currently, they are pursuing dual urban studies and psychology studies while working as a director and cinematographer. They are engaged in a long-term project centered on the Vernon C. Bain Correctional Center (VCBC). VCBC was an 800-bed, 191-meter floating detention facility operated in the East River within the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx from 1992 until November 2023. Their goal is to create a publicly accessible archive on the facility within New York City, to provide activists and whistleblowers with full context on the facility's history and infrastructure, and to provide an opportunity for the general public to examine one of the most inaccessible carceral structures in the city.
