Mia Weinberg’s work is deeply grounded in her belief that art has the potential to serve as a point of focus—a spark—that can lead us to become more present and engaged in our world.
By presenting the ordinary in extraordinary ways she aspires to re-awaken viewers to the wonder and mystery of those common things in our world that are so often overlooked. She explores connections between the natural environment and the places where we live, our personal memories, and our collective civic and cultural stories. Mia’s public art projects are designed to resonate with the location where they will be placed. Her creative process involves an initial phase of research that enables her to develop a fuller understanding of the geography, diverse cultural histories, and natural environment of the site surrounding a project. It is a process she particularly enjoys, as she is keen to ensure that her public installations are relevant to the people who encounter them.
