Sarah Hirneisen uses three-dimensional materials and processes to elevate everyday objects. Her work confronts gender stereotypes and the associations society typically makes with certain consumer goods. Breaking apart these objects, she creates a series of components that combine to become hybrid versions of the originals. Transformed through both traditional and nontraditional materials and processes, the works become a gender mash-up.
