Sarah Sze uses everyday materials, like the things we eat and use on a daily basis, to construct a random piece of art. She goes into her project with no plan but to improvise everything.

Unlike Sarah Sze, in sculpture class, we do some research before going into a project. For example, for our cardboard tower project, our teams look through some towers around the world in order to take some inspiration and put it into our own project. However, I would say all art is improvised. We take the inspiration that we find and we improvise with it to create our own art.
I think Sze’s work is really inspiring. Being able to think of these ideas by just looking through everyday items is pretty inspiring and it is something I hope to have the inspiration for. I would call this art. Sze described her art as the spectator venturing into her very own art studio and seeing a live performance, as if watching a sports game. She has the same process as a painter with a plan.
