Sayako Sugawara is a London based artist working with photography, moving image and installation. Using various photographic processes and the cognitive associations that occur in the physical aspect of creative development, her work explores notions of memory and imagination, analysis and poetics, stillness and movement. She has exhibited internationally. Solo shows include fotodiskurs (DE) and Expositieruimte Moira (NL). Group shows include, ArtWorks Open 2014 , Birmingham Open Media and at Seen Fifteen Gallery (U.K).

Sporenland is a response to a photo archive by an Austrian alpine photographer (1874-1959). Some of the glass negatives from the archive had suffered from mould damage. Following the cognitive associations these traces were isolated and enlarged onto Japanese paper in the darkroom and reconfigured into new and imaginary landscapes.
