Goodman’s series Tangla Scapes (2015-2018), is an investigation of easy to use IOS apps. The convenience of these apps allowed for Sara to work on trains, planes, and on the CTA. Here she began to create worlds she would have liked to visit herself. A mix of technology and the pastoral, Tangla Scapes embodies the merging of the natural world with the digital-- pixelated meadows and trees, glitched out sunsets on a pixel sorted beach, analog distorted water falls. Through the device (a smart phone) and its small frame, Sara dreamed a window back to the world The Romantics must have longed for. Except now we are cyborgs. And where do we go from here? After the small little device hacked our election, propelled Fake News, but also ushered in "revolutions" will the pendulum swing back and the next generation become better at finding a balance through the murky waters of saturated- net -information?
