Sara Morawetz is a conceptual artist whose interdisciplinary practice reflects critically and poetically on the matter and methods of science. Interested in systems and structures that measure experience, her work routinely investigates the mechanics of measuring time and distance –– exploring how these systems convey precision, accuracy and determinacy, yet remain slippery, speculative and whimsical when ‘tested in the field.’
Sara’s work has been exhibited across Australia and Internationally, including exhibitions at the Museé des Arts et Métiers (France), Australian Consulate-General New York, RAPID PULSE International Performing Arts Festival (USA), Open Source Gallery (USA), Contemporary Art Galleries, University of Connecticut (USA), The Lock-Up (Australia) and Dominik Mersch Gallery (Australia). Sara was awarded her Ph.D. from the University of Sydney in 2021 and has received numerous awards and prizes including: ‘the churchie’ National Emerging Art Prize, the Vida Lahey Memorial Travelling Scholarship, the Moya Dyring Studio Scholarship,  the Terrence and Lynette Fern Cité International des Arts Fellowship, as well as project funding from the Australia Council for the Arts. Her work has been featured in publications including Frieze Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Scientific American, Aesthetica Magazine, Artist Profile and Prime: Arts Next Generation recently released by Phaidon Press.
