Velocities by Sarah Klein
Velocities by Sarah Klein, a 2 color risograph book
“Motion can manifest in meditative beauty or cataclysmic change. Velocities is inspired by the widening circles on the surface of a pond and undulations below ground during an earthquake. Each page presents an image sequence that pulsates and ripples in varying magnitudes when animated through the mind’s eye or when using a GIF application on a smart device.”
Sarah Klein is a visual artist, educator and curator based in San Francisco. Working in animation and printmaking she employs drawing, paper cutouts and live-action footage to create narrative and abstract pieces. Informed by a decade of working in stop-motion, she continues to expand on the language of movement within print-based works. Using image sequences and repeated forms, she creates compositions that highlight the parts that make up the whole.
