Sarah Kisch

Bachelor of Applied Arts

I want my art to be able to instill a child-like curiosity among viewers and create an environment that allows them to feel excited about life. My overall goal is to modify familiar objects and make them obscure enough where viewers almost feel the need to re-introduce themselves to certain articles, even though they have already interacted with these objects countless times before. My latest body of work revolves around using sculptural elements to capture renderings of everyday items while tweaking them slightly to fit my own specifications. I want to create environments that spark feelings of whimsy and playfulness and make places that are typically only accessible through imagination. I want to take control and manipulate the environment for myself and those around me, creating new experiences that viewers can interact with. It’s also my hope that viewing these unique elements will provoke appreciation for the more traditional environments that we inhabit on a daily basis.
