Sumlacs is creating immersive, experimental creative projects

Hey! I'm Sarah (aka Sumlacs) and I'm a 28 year old interdisciplinary contemporary artist, programmer, facilitator and events organiser based in Edinburgh, UK.  I also teach, I work in arts galleries and I work to help creative events occur, like the volunteer run Hidden Door Arts Festival. I basically live, breathe, make and think about creative activities 24/7. 

My art practice is predominately all about immersive interactive art where I play with lights, projectors and build installations. I would like to branch out into Design and work more collaboratively with designers and architects to bring my light sculpting to bigger public spaces to create work that helps relieve stress, embraces everybody inclusively and helps create a more sustainable living space for all. 

My ethos is all about making events and spaces that are engaging and inviting and I want my legacy to be one that inspires others to make a real difference as much as I am currently inspired to help improve how we live in today's climate. 

I believe everything is connected, art, politics, social constructs of thought- all of it. Where one thing can affect everything else holistically. Cause and effect, in all ways, at all times. I want to help construct, in my own small way, positive ripples and incremental effects through the continuation of my practice, event building and design projects. Please help me afford to create my projects by supporting me. I am grateful for any support given as I understand the power of the individual and anything gifted to me will help me afford to rent a studio space, pay for other creatives to work on projects with me, help me develop exhibitions and dream big for the future. 

Thank you for reading about me. I hope you can support and I look forward to sharing with you my project progress and creative journeys in a variety of ways. I'm always up for collaborating, be it internationally or on a local level, with community projects, creative consultancy, educational support, or anything random and light or sound based. Give me a shout and say hi either way. 

Warm regards, 
Sumalcs
