Sarah Edwards is inspired by natural history museums and their role in preserving and representing nature. She worked for fifteen years at Museum Victoria providing access to its science and social history collections. Sarah is currently undertaking a PhD within the School of Art at RMIT, Melbourne. Her research investigates the tension that exists between the quest for permanence in museum practice and the ephemerality of nature, using the mediums of light and sound in response to site-specificity.
Sarah’s interest in participating in collecting contemporary craft stems from her interest in museums and their role in the display and care of collections. She brings first-hand experience in collection management and display techniques to the Bluestone Collective
