Today’s activity is inspired by artist Sara Cwynar. Combining collage and sculpture we will create a mini photo booth. You can use this booth to photograph small objects from your home, such as toys, jewelry or other keepsakes. 

Artist Bio
Open

Sara Cwynar uses photography, collage and film in her artwork. She collects images from a variety of sources, such as magazines, eBay and old photo albums. Cwynar is interested in images that are popular and desirable. By placing them in new contexts she prompts viewers to question why we value such images. Cwynar was born in Vancouver and now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
