Sarah Rara

Sarah Rara’s multi-disciplinary practice—including performance, writing, and video—explores the position of witness within fragile systems. Focusing on:
  1. human-technology relationships
  2. power, consumption, choice, accessibility, interpretation
  3. states of readiness and attention
  4. overlap of lyrical and empirical structures
