    Artist Statement
    Over the past five years, I have directed my attention to making art in response to social interactions with the people I come into contact with in my daily life. I have photographed friends, foreign exchange students, refugees and their extended families, and perfect strangers who, like me, are struggling to build home and community in an era marked by economic crisis and global instability. We who have left our family and have yet to create traditional nuclear families of our own occupy a social space that is liminal. We stand poised at a delicate and precarious threshold that opens out onto an unknown future. The pressures of this stage of life both incite us to our greatest potential and paralyze us with a fear that permeates our daily lives. I see it in my students who prepare to leave my classes, in my friends who prepare for their adult lives, and, most of all, in myself. I have become deeply interested in the various idiosyncratic and creative ways in which each of us responds to a similar condition of transition and up-rootedness in these unprecedented times. – Sarah Martin
