Sara Dittrich, performance still for The Tender Interval, 2020, digital image.

The Tender Interval is a newly commissioned series of multi-sensory experiences developed by Sara Dittrich using the body’s circulatory system as a means of fielding questions about close listening and ecological healing. Through installation and durational performance, the works awaken using biosensors that track heartbeats and footsteps in real-time. The series becomes an entry for meditation on how our bodies relate to their surroundings, interior and exterior. Dittrich uses repetitive gestures to encourage the audience to slow down, engage in sensory perception, and find poetic refuge. Dittrich will be developing virtual live stream experiences of these new works to be presented in fall 2020.


Sara Dittrich is an interdisciplinary sculpture artist based in Baltimore, Maryland. She creates introspective environments that spark empathy and connectedness through the use of musical performance, video, and interactive electronic technologies. Dittrich has exhibited her work at notable venues including the Baltimore Museum of Art; Washington Project for the Arts, DC; and Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, MI. Selected residencies include the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, NE; Sculpture Space, Utica, NY; and the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA. She received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014.
