Sarah Ann Banks - Reverse Wormhole
Sarah Ann Banks
Reverse Wormhole explores the existence of a cosmic creature with a random matter-generating portal for a head. As we follow her through space and time, she expels distorted life forms into existence.
Originally from Dallas, Texas, Sarah Ann Banks is an artist working primarily with 3D animation software. Banks’ works take shape based on popular imagery, art objects, and personal narratives. She uses the digital space to develop personalized and expansive worlds that build on one and other overtime. Banks is interested in the many ways 3D software can be utilized, from high scale production to the at home novice. She sees the overlap between these two ways of operating as the focal point for her creative process. Banks has a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her work has been shown in Chicago, Santa Fe, Boston,New York, Germany, Greece, and Iceland.
…by artists is an artist-led curatorial programme, where selected artists present online work and invite their peers to create a succession of content around the yearly theme for a period of two weeks. This strand of AOS aims to create networks between continents of digital artists as the current exhibiting artist is then asked to invite the next artist to participate in the project, keeping the chain going. The digital collage created through the ongoing series will become automatic, exploring various ideas as it develops, and aims to form a conversation between peer groups and acts as a stage for presenting new work by emerging artists.
