bio

 

Eliza works in installation, photography, drawing, movement, and performance, navigating the tension between form and ephemerality. Through massing and reordering mundane, often rejected, materials, her work explores structure and improvisation, the materials acting as registrations of mechanical processes and the mechanism for capturing transitory events. Eliza runs a studio at Erector Square in New Haven, Connecticut.
