A web developer and performance installation artist, Sara Schnadt creates networks built from an impressive quantity of vividly colored, found and donated fiber material (string, thread, twine, and wire) that represent the “new collective activity” of creating and sharing information online. During the course of the exhibition, Schnadt performs in the gallery for two days a week to plot the network onto and between two large maps across the space. One map shows a massive array of text including search terms and text fragments from hundreds of searches, while the other offers a geographic overview of global internet access. This work is related to the Mapping the Self exhibition.
