|ARTIST STATEMENT ~ more information at sarahansonwow.com”I create cast metal sculptures that invite viewers to interact with them, the environment, others, and themselves. My sculptures are investigations of astro/geological and self-created recordings of time, human exploration and forms of communication. These ideas translate into my sculptures through the formation of deep-sea and planetary life and the observational equipment/modules that accompany their exploration. These traveling creature-machines wish to share their experiences, some information and possible answers.The materials I use, cast metal, lights and lenses, conceptualize the internal/external mechanics of these objects, beings and places. The process of metal casting is essential to the formation of a piece and is the physical manifestation of my exploration. I am able to explore how I can inform the process and reveal it in a finished piece. I use light and lenses to add dimension, change perception, and expose internal landscape. Viewers are invited into the space to discover and conduct surveillance.”|
