Sarah Filley’s art practice focuses on conceptual ideas realized through sculptural objects, musical scores, and civic collaborations. She has created ElkTech, a research and art entity with critical and somewhat ambiguous corporate ambitions, as an umbrella company in order to contextualize her life-use oriented items which blur the line between art, design, and product.
