We highlighted the work of Sayaka Ganz back in early 2010 (here), but this recent post on Book of Joe gives an excuse to bring it up again, and pass along some thoughts from Ganz about her method.
And also an excuse to publish the awesome image above.
I only select objects that have been used and discarded. My goal is for each object to transcend its origin by being integrated into an animal/ organic forms that are alive and in motion. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist.
Building these sculptures helps me understand the situations that surround me. It reminds me that even if there is a conflict right now, there is also a solution in which all the pieces can coexist peacefully. Though there are wide gaps in some areas and small holes in others, when seen from the distance there is great beauty and harmony in our community.
