EXPEDITIONIST PROFILE

Sarah Scott

  • AGE: 37
  • nationality: Tanzanian
  • residence: Dar es Salaam
  • athletic skills: Running, surfing, kiteboarding, yoga, creativity
  • hero status: Superwoman
  • hero statement: A installation or an event concept evolves and takes shape during the process of implementation, not in isolation but as a part of creative whole. The key is to stay open yet focused, a balance of listening to others opinions and ideas and being able to extract the beauty to enhance the project without compromising original concept - it is a process of expansion. I love the idea of art as a form of communication - to motivate, move and inspire.
