After two days with Sarah Illenberger and you’ll start looking at the world differently through different eyes. Everyday ordinary objects will appear as unconventional materials for creating three-dimensional illustrations. With Sarah Illenberger, participants will get their hands dirty to create their own tactile collage depicting a story with a generous amount of complexity using simple materials from fruits and vegetables to rocks, paper, textiles and yarn. Once your ideas are transformed into tangible form, with Sarah’s assistance, participants will photograph their labor of love into three-dimensional illustrations.
The following materials will be supplied for you during the workshop:
Basic studio materials including tons of papers, scissors, and every day objects to create your three-dimensional illustration included.
About the host

Her visual language is extremely effective at translating content, data, and ideas into vivid, often humorous images. Whether big or small, abstract or complex, the subjects and problems of our times are pointedly depicted by this renowned illustrator and designer in concise visual forms. The conceptual strength, descriptive intensity, and spatial finesse of her style make her work particularly attractive for international magazines that are looking for a catchy and entertaining way to illustrate their articles. Meticulously created with analog handicraft instead of using a computer, Sarah Illenberger’s richly-detailed work opens up new perspectives on seemingly familiar, iconographically-charged forms and content and has appeared in international magazines and brands such as Vanity Fair, Time Magazine, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Wallpaper and Nike. Gestalten has also published the Berlin-based artist's eponymous first monograph entitled Sarah Illenberger.
