Over the past two years, my work has gravitated strongly towards projects that directly engage the public. I also aim to seek connections between art and everyday activities. In Part I of Sarver’s Fishing Report, my two great interests, art and fishing, have come to a crossroads and sparked a new project, a video piece on fishing in Pennsylvania as seen through the eyes of an artist. In working on the video, I discovered an interesting group of people with a variety of backgrounds and interests. I plan to continue work on the project and to release an hour-long piece in 2009.
