Sarah Bernstein, artist

I am a fourth year student in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at the University of British Columbia in the Okanagan. Being raised in Vancouver, I have spent my life immersed in the culture and vibrancy of this city. I have a strong interest in social media, art, writing, design, fashion and music. As a millennial, I have seen first hand the growth and impact of technology; both the way it has benefitted our world and how it has made it worse. My artwork investigates visual imagery of the deconstructed and re-assembled iconic mid-twentieth century technology. I have experimented with cassette tapes, both the hard plastic cover and the ribbon, and have found a unique way of processing this material. My work has elements of time passages and contains the mix of old technology with contemporary images. My art functions as both self-expression and the cultural expression of the times we live in
