Sarah Sze in "Balance"

Artist Sarah Sze builds her installations and intricate sculptures from the minutiae of everyday life, imbuing mundane materials, marks, and processes with surprising significance.

In New York City’s High Line park, she strikes a balance between form and function as she creates a sculpture as post-modern bird habitat as well as a study of architectural perspective and space.

Sarah Sze

Sarah Sze builds her installations and intricate sculptures from the minutiae of everyday life, imbuing mundane materials, marks, and processes with surprising significance. By arranging domestic detritus and office supplies into fantastical miniatures, she builds her works, fractal-like, on an architectural scale. Whether adapting to a site or disrupting the urban fabric, Sze’s patchwork compositions mirror the improvisational quality of cities, balancing whimsy with ecological themes of interconnectivity and sustainability.

“…Ten minutes of observation is an incredibly long time for a person. And this idea of slowing down and really observing, I think it’s a really interesting idea also for visual art.”
