Sara Black and Amber Ginsburg work together on projects that suggest a material-centered perspective of the world as opposed to an object-centered one. Sara’s enduring commitment to trees and Amber’s background in clay inclines them to employ craft processes as a way to accentuate time-based methodologies. Together they generate works that examine both objects and landscape as constructs of the human imaginary. By utilizing craft processes drawn from specific historic traditions and wood or other materials from unique and sometimes precarious ecological contexts, they hope to delimit the constructed boundaries of both object and landscape and then offer an other than human-centered depiction of the ecological complexities surrounding these imaginaries. They both show nationally and internationally, publish, and are members of Deep Time Chicago. Sara is an assistant professor of sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Amber is a lecturer in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago.
