Sabrina Ward Harrison

For my design culture and context class we were instructed to write about an artist who inspires us...

In life, the optimum feeling we as humans feel is joy. To record and remember that joy as well as to convey it in new situations is an incredible and rewarding feat. To be able to do this while at the same time acknowledging our digression in society brought about by technology and wastefulness is something I strive for and respect. Sabrina Ward Harrison is an artist who works along these ideals. She reports on “the electrifying experience of being” and addresses the fading cultural landscape of our country and our interconnectedness as human beings. Through her journals and mixed media work involving photography, sound, collage, film, and found objects, she creates inspired by the beauty in the landscape and the world.  She believes we need to be brought home to the presence of our living, a notion that both coincides with my ideals and invigorates my soul.
