About Artist

Sara Ko is a 3D visual artist and animator based in Canada, focusing primarily on projects that involve experimenting with new media and audio/video installations at the intersection of science, art, and technology. Drawing deep inspiration from the intricate wonders of nature, Sara explores the uniqueness of highly detailed forms and organic shapes. 

Her passion lies in pushing the boundaries of imagination to craft uncanny figures and scenes, prompting contemplation on various subjects such as mental health conditions, identity, and the human impact on environmental issues. Through her manipulation of digital landscapes, Sara extends an invitation to viewers to journey into realms where imagination knows no bounds.
