Sara Ludy

Sara Ludy (b.1980, Orange, CA) is an American artist and composer working in a wide range of media including digital painting, animation, VR, websites, installation and sound.

„I make art because it’s the most natural way for me to understand fundamental aspects of being and what it means to be alive on our planet.“

Sara Ludy's practice weaves the everyday into natural and simulated forms through various mediums including animation, 3d, virtual reality, AI, the internet, blockchains, video, sound, installation, painting, sculpture, photography, performance, and expanded media. She combines and collapses mediums to create hybrid forms such as a photo becoming a 3d object, or a 3d object becoming a painting. Through a process of transforming and transcending material boundaries, these forms reflect a world where many physical and virtual boundaries have collapsed.

No matter the material or form of the work, there is an energy she often seeks; an embedded tension and reflection of being in a post-digital world. It’s hyperreal and unstable, uncanny and familiar, sublime and mundane. She experiments with materials to find new forms of this energy through automatic and conceptual processes. The automatic side approaches materials in an experimental and intuitive way, free from any conditions. The conceptual side approaches ideas through philosophical and cosmological contemplations on the way we inhabit space and time.
