Sasha Fishman is a sculptor and researcher based in LA and Baltimore. She is particularly interested in marine biomaterials, toxicology, and genetic engineering as points for critical analysis + mechanisms for sculpting. Her practice spans caring for deep sea eels and algae to formulating sculptable materials from found biomass.

Sasha has presented her work, and run workshops at Genspace, UCLA, UDenver, CSULB, and Caltech where she has been a research fellow. Recent projects include a community cicada shell collection and bioplastic extraction workshop in Baltimore, and developing marine based bioplastics as alternatives for resin. Sasha is currently working at the Baltimore Jewelry Center for a self directed residency and is an artistic research assistant at SUPERCOLLIDER in LA.
