Sarah Nesbitt: Making Sense of What We Have

By combining the traditionally separate disciplines of installation, sculpture, photography, and printmedia, Sarah Nesbitt creates works that are constructed through sewing, dissecting, writing, and pinning combined with images. Using photography to anchor these sculptural objects with stories of their own, these pieces are tools of organizing, identification, and creation of histories.

I find that written and visual information has incredible power on our actions, thoughts and relationships. Information is formed effortlessly, through interpretation. When it’s created and executed, it is no longer in the sole possession of the creator, leaving it vulnerable and open to re-interpretation. Many times many people share similar thoughts, creating different ways of transferring those ideas. How that information survives, depends on the one who carries it forward.
