Sarah Züst
this is the online documentation of my graduation project "In de Loop der Tijd".

It documents all the three points of interest that this projects contains;
- my artistic field research at the codarts dance academy in rotterdam. (sept 2012 - jan 2013)

- theoretical / critical studies with its fundamentals in the philosophical thoughts of the phenomenology of perception.

- art works that I created out of the inspiration of the artistic field research and the theoretical / critical studies + the graduation art piece „In de Loop der Tijd; the sonic architecture installation“.
Sarah Züst creates, observes, perceives,
(de/re) constructs and structures space.

Having been born in Switzerland, she has been living in the Netherlands for the past two years. Whilst here she developed a fascination of how much the environment influences human beings, how we perceive the space around us through our own body and how we find
orientation within the space.

Shaped by a previous education as a draughtsman and two years of studying design her installations, architectonical compositions and constructed situations have an abstract and raw embodiment with a focus on shape, materiality and setting. Yet the origin is always a reflection on personal memories, stories and her perception of the world around her.

Her experiments with soundscapes and
compositions are raw and guided with a
narrative line throughout.

This layered approach has it’s fundamentals in the philosophical thoughts of Edmund Husserl and Maurice Merleau-Ponty and furthermore is inspired by the International Situationists, writers as George Perec, architects as Peter Zumthor and musicians as John Cage.
