Susan Robb

Susan Robb

Work from We're Coming, We're Coming, Wait Up, Stones.

"Susan Robb's sculptures and built environments transform common objects into ideological hybrids of flesh, nature, and technology. Drawing on empirical observation, reflection, and imagination about her immediate surroundings and contemporary social issues, these hybridizations are open-ended investigations into the kaleidoscopic intersection of culture and nature, speaking of the intelligence of nature and dynamic systems.

Produced with aerial photographs of the U.S. taken by the artist that are then split, mirrored and bookmatched into new compositions using our visual understanding of the American landscape as translated though such diverse methods as zone-system photography, military aerial photography, and strip mining maps, as well as our biological endowed understanding of visual information as bilaterally symmetric beings." - Susan Robb
