Sarah Nesbitt, from the series Making Sense of What We Have
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(s) who decides to carry it forward. This constantly reshapes a concept for people to understand, and it could lose its original meaning. That’s what makes research so important, providing substance from additional resources strengthens what is delivered, but how is it that we determine what information holds more value? These ideas are communicated by combining traditionally separate disciplines such as installation, sculpture and photography where the surfaces of the printed media used are disrupted by physical alterations through sewing, dissecting, writing and pinning.
