Sara Morawetz is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the processes that underpin scientific action, examining of how these concepts can be leveraged through artistic inquiry. Interested in the ‘Scientific Method’ and its philosophical implications, her work is devised to test and expose the internal processes of methodological labour – employing systems, actions and processes to reveal the exhaustive, the obsessive, the poetic and the absurd – aspects that are all inherent to scientific endeavour. 

Morawetz's work has been exhibited in Australia and internationally, including performances at Rapid Pulse International Performing Arts Festival, Chicago (2015), Bronx ArtSpace, NYC (2015) and Open Source Gallery, NYC (2015). Her recent work has involved collaborations with scientists from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Centre, NY,  the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
