The direction of Samuel Nigro’s work consists of three strands:
 
1. stone work – 
 
Presently, he wants to work in the range of 100-ton blocks of granite, about the volume of a bus. This is an extension of the large-scale work he did in India, 2014. He seeks the means, the partners, and locations for permanent site-specific work.
 
 
2. video work – 
 
He works on a three-part video and performance exercise to explore the issues of agency, contingency and strategy. Please see the contingency portion of this website or THIS selection of videos for more.
 
 
3. the training – 
 
This strand includes learning or practicing anything he needs to know or be able to do to allow him to accomplish the above two strands and falls into three general categories: a. reading, writing, and math; b. physical skills; and c. drawing. Right now, his working title for the training project is 100!.
