We're Not Made of Metal by Sarah Bush, is an interactive group of sheet metal sculptures that explore and express an internal concern with the societal movement toward mechanical ways of being and how this movement inherently negates the importance and value of the individual. The idea developed during a time when Sarah was losing herself in a push toward mechanization and achievement, while forgetting about the importance of rest and laughter. She hopes that her work will inspire an audience to consider the reality of this modern issue and the way it can lead us away from our true selves.
