Los Angeles - based award winning filmmaker, artist, and photographer, Sasha Marie Speer, explores the threads that connect humans to each other, nature, and themselves.
What's your zone of genius?
My background is as a healer (Doctor of Physical Therapy) where I used a lot of mindset tools such as breathing and visualizations to heal. I have since delved further into these fields and bring forth my deep knowledge of the human mind and psychology in my art to help open up people's minds and perceptions of themselves and the world they live in.
How's your love life?
I am recently engaged! Funny story, we actually met in an art gallery as I was pitching one of my shows (which you're technically not supposed to do, but how do you get anywhere by listening to the way things are "supposed" to be done.). We couldn't stop talking and have been together ever since!
Why do you do what you do?
Each of my shows has a very specific intention that relates to the theme. I make sure I am a 100% clearing for that intention before the show. As an example, for our REBIRTH show, I cleared out every ounce of my past that I hadn't yet dealt with, including the physical manifestations of my drawers, closet and file folders and set very clear goals for my future. Thus, I will be able to hold the space through my work and energy to allow visitors to tap into their own clearing for their future.
