Sarah Sze

Similarly to what the Everyday group discussed today in class, Sarah Sze, an artist known for her site-specific pieces, frequently uses everyday objects to create unique pieces of artwork. Based on the space provided, Sze designs intricately-designed installation pieces that catch the eye, though constructed from everyday objects such as water bottles, books, rulers, lamps, etc. as seen in the pictures above and below. Her obvious attention to details such as color, shape, and lighting indicate that she, unlike many, is very aware of her everyday surroundings. As a result, she is able to fashion installations such as these which, in turn, raise awareness in others about everyday objects due to the size and shape of her pieces. Though fashioned of unexpected and common objects, Sze's pieces possess a quality of grandeur about them due to their very intricate nature.
