bio

 

Eliza explores the intersection of light and form in large-scale installation, photography, drawing, movement, and performance. 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.
