Work from her oeuvre.
“A growing trend within certain net art circles is investigating the processes involved in translating landscapes and nature onto and within digital frameworks. Sara Ludy should be considered as one of the more creative practitioners of this type of adaptation amongst this camp of makers. Her diverse work speaks to how space (and it’s psychological affects) operate in network culture. The combination of photography, collage, live performance, video, and music all interweave into an intricate and sublime web of gestures that challenge how we interact and present nature online.
Ludy largely plays with the tension found between using digital and analogue devices. She will compose a collage and or animation through software and then re-record or document these works through analog video of traditional darkroom photography. This experimentation with material creates a traceable dance with objects and their representation, blurring the lines of how one distinguishes the difference between the artificial and the organic…” – excerpt from Nicholas O’Brien
