Sarah Sze in "Balance" - Season 6 - "Art in the Twenty-First Century" | Art21

Art21 proudly presents an artist segment, featuring Sarah Sze, from the "Balance" episode in Season 6 of the "Art in the Twenty-First Century" series.

"Balance" premiered in May 2012 on PBS.

Artist Sarah Sze builds her installations and intricate sculptures from the minutiae of everyday life, imbuing mundane materials, marks, and processes with surprising significance. In New York City’s High Line park, she strikes a balance between form and function as she creates a sculpture as post-modern bird habitat as well as a study of architectural perspective and space.
