The movies she made with her Fisher-Price camera soon became popular. The images were flat, grainy and black and white but full of life. (eye.net) They were coined as "Pixelvision" videos, and Sadie was looked up to as a pioneer of "Pixelvision". She received a Rockefeller grant at 19 and by the time Sadie was 20 years old, her videos were being shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Last year, her video Flat Is Beautiful (1998) was screened at the Whitney Biennial. Sadie also made a video for the punk group Julie Ruin called Aerobicide.
At the ripe old age of 27, Sadie is looking into a new medium for her artistic side: rock 'n' roll. She has formed a band called Le Tigre with Kathleen Hanna, formerly of Bikini Kill and Johanna Fateman, a magazine writer. They released their first album in February of 1999 and they plan on recording a follow-up this year. (time.com) She currently resides in Tivoli, USA where she is still using her PXL 2000 to show the world just how creative a Wisconsin girl can be. (werkleitz.de)
