VISUAL ANSWERS TO WORDED QUESTIONS / SASHA CRESDEE PROFILE
1.Please describe your creative process.
Currently studying Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art, Sasha Cresdee documents herself through lo-fi self portraiture, still life assemblages and collage that remove and examine her physical form, and explore “voids, textures, print, colour, the self and how these elements occupy space within the photographic image”. Personal yet generic ephemera that evidence the passage of adolescence to adulthood. These hallmarks of Tumblr’s selfie generation form the environment of artist Sasha Cresdee’s work.
WE ASKED THE ARTISTS SASHA CRESDEE TO ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT HER WORK IN PURELY VISUAL TERMS.
2. You publish much of your work on Tumblr, and your self portrait is a recurring symbol. How do you visualize the landscape of the world wide web?
3.Your work contains a ‘selfie’ element, often using the negative space of your body, or showing it dissected and re-arranged. Describe the way you see yourself a) IRL and b) Online.
4.The frequently scrappy, mixed media nature of your collages conveys the re-cycled, re-blogged, re-edited, re-grammed feel of social media’s abstract and designed visual language. What is your relationship with social media?
5. If you could look like anyone or anything else who or what would you look like and how would that look?
6.You have used knitting and embroidery alongside the digital in your work. What interests you about combining these different media in art?
