Sarah Max Beck

Artist Statement/Bio

B. 1984, Tacoma, Washington

Sarah Max Beck’s body of work builds on symbiotic, closed-loop human nutrient systems; redefining waste as resource; and comments, often wryly and self-consciously, on the parallels of current elective human influence on the planet and a parasitic infection of a host.

A background in agriculture became tangled up with a sculpture degree until a creative practice with compost, resource recovery, fermentation, permaculture, and post-consumer plastics all amalgamated into bioart. Beck is co-founder of studioHydrostatic, a collaborative bioart lab in NYC.

CV upon request

I promise that I’ll never, ever, ever sell your info or even keep it stored up; I don’t even know how cookies work or anything. I had to use this stupid form because bots were spamming the heck outta me, like, non-stop. So, I put that new invisible reCAPTCHA deal on here (no more having to pick out all the crosswalks or storefronts, or whatever, out of a grid -what a real drag that is, I mean, I’m busy) and I guess it can tell if you’re a bot because bots don’t click or type in fields and stuff. I imagine its all like, “Wait, did you just magic-auto-fill that and not just regular-auto-fill? Nah. Rejected, bot!” The other bot will be all like, “Oh yeah? Well, it takes one to know one!” just before taking its malware and penis pills elsewhere. Anyway, just keep being a human and you can send me an email through this here CONTACT form.
