In the third episode of Interno, Mariam Arcilla speaks with Sara Morawetz, a New Mexico-based Australian artist, investigator and method maker. Sara explores the emotional and psychogeographical forces behind scientific action and systems to create durational performances and exploratory research.
Conducted over Zoom, Sara reflects on her first-hand experience of coronavirus, her collaborations with NASA scientists, and why university arts degrees are crucial for Australia’s creative currency. This episode also explores how the artist uses her body as an apparatus and an archive to create works that unveil the processes of methodological labour.
