The works in the Psy-Phi series are inspired by Edge of Chaos Theory. The theory posits that when systems run down and structures give way to entropic dissolution, a zone which allows for strong creative regeneration blossoms before total chaos. It is in this zone, on the edge of chaos, that inventiveness is at is apogee. These collages bring together images from man-made structures, organic and fluid forms, brutalist art and biological organisms to create science fiction like structures. Their titles make reference to an armature that weaves together psychic states, philosophy, science and mythology; all human attempts to navigate our connection to the cosmos.
Sara Cardona was born in Mexico City and currently lives and works in Dallas. She uses the analog process of cut-and-paste to create collages in the tradition of early twentieth century assemblage and in a nod to the editing process of film. These collages then become the foundation for large scale sculptures in paper and metal, which are inspired by the idea of distributive, human networks of capital and consumption. As an artist who grew up in a family involved in the film and theater industry, her work is informed by the intersection of artifice, spectacle, photography and scenic construction.
