SHULI SADÉ: I am an interdisciplinary artist. I was trained as a visual artist and have been
greatly inspired by architecture and design. I’ve taught classes at several
A&D schools, including Parsons, the School of Architecture at the University of
Pennsylvania, and the School of Architecture at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
IS: How did you end up in such a specialized nook of the art world?
SS: My interest in spatial perception and structural geometry makes architecture a
great source of inspiration for my process. As a multi-disciplinary artist I often mix two
and three dimensional concepts, alternating between photography, video, drawings,
objects, and installation. Sculpting and building architectural models had given me
some confidence with creating functional objects. Certain projects allow me to
experiment with larger scale fabrications and give me the opportunity to collaborate
with professional makers outside of the artist studio. I believe that’s what I was aiming
for all along: collaborating with architects, designers, fabricators, and overall innovative
clients on large-scale art projects related to specific places.
