Like a more cheery opening to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Like a lively Rubik’s cube you could live in and walk around. Texas-based installation artist Margo Sawyer’s work is bold, bright, perky, and wondrous. Interested in translating the idea of sacred spaces using the vocabulary of modern times, she loves the idea of the experience of space and the ideas of humans transcending space. She seeks out the intersection of architecture and ritual. Recent years have seen her tackle large scale, public installations that are a perfect balance between art and architecture.
