Honored by Newsweek as one of the "Women Shaping the 21st Century,” Tiffany Shlain is an artist, Emmy-nominated filmmaker, founder of the Webby Awards, and author of the national bestselling book 24/6: Giving up Screens One Day a Week to Get More Time, Creativity, and Connection, which won the Marshall McLuhan Outstanding Book Award. Shortly before the pandemic, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City premiered her one-woman show, Dear Human, about the relationship between humanity and technology. When the world shut down during COVID, Shlain spent the time walking in the redwoods and began working in large-scale sculpture, photography, and mixed media, exploring themes of scale, perspective, and time. She was selected as artist in residence by SHACK15 at the San Francisco Ferry Building, and began creating an exhibition, which debuted on the top floor of the Ferry Building, called Human Nature. The exhibition was presented by The National Women's History Museum based in Washington D.C. and Women Connect4Good. ​


Working across film, art, and performance, Shlain's work explores the intersection of feminism, ecology, neuroscience, and philosophy. She has had multiple films premiere at Sundance, was selected by the Albert Einstein Foundation as one of the people carrying on his legacy, and received the Neil Postman Award for Career Achievement in Public Intellectual Activity. The US State Department has used Shlain’s films to represent the U.S. at embassies around the world. She has held artist residencies at the Headland Center for the Arts, the American Museum of Jewish History, and the Da Vinci Museum, which created an exhibit of all of her work on gender and society. In addition to bringing the Human Nature exhibition to new locations in 2023, she is working on a new exhibition that will open in Los Angeles in 2024.

“In this wise, wonderful work, filmmaker Shlain eloquently argues the merits of taking a break from technology, particularly smartphones, one day a week …Bolstered with fascinating and germane facts about neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and the history of the concept of a day of rest, this excellent cross between instruction and memoir deserves a wide audience.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

 

“I’m won over to a day with people, not screens….”  “I tried Shlain’s idea and I highly recommend it.”—David Leonhardt, The New York Times
