sarah filley: emergency survival kit

Emergency Kit
Contains over 40 items researced by the Preparedness Division of Elktech. Bonus items addressed special needs of children, infants, dogs, as well as assorted adult comforts. Everyone seems to have a different “Kit.” All of them are woefully incomplete. The fallacy of lone survival, so popular in this culture, bellies the real need for community involvement, self-reliance tempered with interdependence.

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.
