Sophie's daily collage practice has allowed her to develop an aesthetic that is personal, playful and practical. she enjoys the challenge of using whatever visual stimuli is available (magazines, newspapers, tickets…) to create an image that can pose visual or literal questions to the viewer. Her ongoing work in film pushes herself to strip an image or a narrative to its most essential form. This desire to simplify drives the collage making: sophie is equally interested in the empty spaces that hold their visual worlds as the cutout images and words that compose them.
sophie siem studied art history and filmmaking and am currently completing my training as an Alexander Technique teacher.
