“...speech can be appreciated as a dramatic movement, a choreography modulating all the intensities that pass between body and Language, between emotional energy and semantic meaning, between memory and conversation. The gaps and spacings [...] only reinforce and remind of this primary action: that one is located within the flow of surrounding life, and wherein language is central.” Brandon LaBelle, 2014

Plymouth Art Center
3rd November 2016
This one day research symposium invited creative practitioners and researchers to respond to the theme of ‘Immersion’. Immersion can be understood as both an intense form of engagement, where all our faculties are engaged, but also as a kind of sensory stimulation that suggests ideological control or escapism. In this symposium, contributors are invited to respond to the aesthetic and political implications of immersion, especially focused upon questions to do with creative practice. Immersion might be understood, for example, through the way that making immerses the maker in a process, or the way that in participatory art and performance the artist and audience are immersed in an experience.
BA Show 2010
Royal William Yard, Plymouth July 2010
The Dark Room; A Constellation of Melancholic Fragments
Exhibition Info - This work exhibited for the final end of year show is centred on the intricacies, nuances and complexities of the melancholic state of mind. This installation throws this notion into a more physical and performative expression by which we ourselves become the obstacle.
Within The Dark Room, Sarah invites her audience to enter and experience the uncertainty of melancholy, through the use of space and light, to manifest itself entirely into our ‘state of being’ if even for a moment.
