Devices : Sarah Schönfeld

Devices

The Devices are trickster objects, machinistic assemblages of everyday items, introducing different notions and ideas on technology and magic. I explore the metaphysical dimension of machines as well as the nature vs culture question. The practice explores the boundaries and connections of machine, instrument and organ. The Devices can be the magic tools, eventually used in my Labs, to confuse or tear apart contexts and the materials within the performances.
