Sarah Burrell is an internationally active spatial designer and artist whose practice spans installation, interactive design, and socially-engaged practice. Her projects take the form of sound installations, participatory performances and urban interventions—innovative hybrid works that invite participants to reimagine the world they live in and how they participate in it. Her work has been presented at Art in Odd Places and La Mama Experimental Theatre in New York, The Performance Arcade and the Creative NZ 21st Century Interactive Art Conference in New Zealand, The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space in the Czech Republic, and Art Prospekt in Russia. Sarah has also worked in the UK as the creative assistant to Blast Theory, who are widely recognised as one of the most adventurous artists’ groups using interactive media. Sarah is currently undertaking a PhD within Interior Design at RMIT University, School of Architecture & Urban Design. She lives and works in Melbourne.
She received her training at Massey University College of Creative Arts, Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School, and Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation.
Sarah is a sessional Lecturer in Interior Design (School of Architecture & Urban Design, RMIT) and Spatial Design (School of Design, MADA, Monash University).
