Created using rings made by the Breckenridge community, Peoples’ Puzzled Place demonstrates how individual elements supporting one another can reinforce the larger whole. Each piece, arranged or puzzled like a wooden mosaic are linked together amongst the trees creating a unique, defined space to investigate and explore.
Originally raised in northern New Jersey, Langsam now lives and works in both New York and the Jersey Shore. Since earning her BFA from The University of Delaware in 2013, Langsam has exhibited across the country, most notably the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Her organic material arrangements have earned her multiple awards and residencies. Langsam’s work explores questions about life stages and nature’s interaction with human life. Pieces represent components of life normally taken for granted and bring them to the forefront of the viewer’s focus, introducing themes of identity, relationships, and vitality. Langsam is interested in having the viewer join her in the creative process. By working collaboratively and sharing her process with communities, she is able to study art through the eyes of others.
Sarah Langsam is one of the featured environmental installations within the Trail Mix series, part of the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts, which runs Aug 11–201, 2017.z
