Dirty Illustrations

Collecting dirt from local parks, New York City based artist, Sarah Rosado transforms what many people find disgusting into lovely illustrations, capturing their ephemeral beauty at the perfect moment before they disappear. We've seen this sculpting technique done with food all over the internet, but food in itself is appealing to our senses; Rosado instead uses the soil that gives the nutrients to all we deem edible. Calling her project 'Dirty Little Secrets', she hopes to have 100 images when the set is complete and has finished 43 so far. Arranging the brown dirt to contrast on a white background to shape it into everyday objects like a camera or steaming cup of tea, she uses her camera to preserve the short-term sculptures forever. - New York City, New York, United States - Wednesday 9th October 2013 (9 Pictures)
