For In response to experiences on Earth the visual artist and curator Sage Lewis asked a random sampling of people to describe for her a time when they felt like they were on another planet. Each segment is from a different person describing different places and she has ordered them and pieced them together with some minor edits for grammar. In this creative writing piece, Sage uses found/assembled language. Inspired by her experiences in the desert of Qatar, her current project Mars analogues uses the surface of the earth as a corollary to surfaces of the moon and Mars. Mars analogues are places on earth that simulate conditions or characteristics of Mars. The techniques of mosaic, collage, or assemblage in art are useful for thinking about the layering, coding, and collage processes that happen within “screen space” to compose and compress such images. Image data that is captured in space by remote lenses and transmitted to earth for assembly has a material process that she is tracing as a model for her work.

 

 

The American artist and curator Sage Lewis is interested in the connections between material process and concept and works through drawing, sculpture, prints, and photography to translate images into multiple outcomes. Her photo-based works evoke an uncertain sense of space and establish a tactile relationship between drawing and the photographic. Lewis has recently exhibited at the Denison Museum in Granville, Ohio, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Hamad bin Khalifa University Art Gallery in Doha, Qatar. She held positions in arts administration and curating at the Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA, the Maine Arts Commission, and most recently, the Portland Museum of Art.

Here we present the documentary of the edition 2017 of the artist residency Barda del Desierto in Patagonia.
