I just feel the need, every once and a while to look back on manias of the past. The end of the Mayan calander is one of many examples of irrational doomsaying that people actually have bothered to contemplate. That year was particularly rich in postponed apocalypses. Just google “end of the world 2012″ and [...]

"Dysphoria" 16"x16" oil on canvas painting by Elizabeth Fuller

Throughout this intense period of multi fascited dysphoria, she expresses a frequent, emotional refrain: “:’(“ “Dysphoria” represents my first exploration in thermochromatic paint. While most of the painting is rendered in traditional oils, the bar at the end is intended to gently blink on and off, alluding it this sense of anticipation. What will be [...]

"(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻" (Flipping Table) 24"x18" oil by Elizabeth Fuller.

I used to hate emoticons. They struck me as lazy. They are the digital equivalent of saying something is “nice” or “interesting.” They are the effortless filler to diffuse a tense situation, to perform approval without expressing any investment, to imply interest without attention. It was to me, no more than a digital knee jerk [...]

Red Herring painting in acrylics by Elizabeth Fuller

A while back, I told my boyfriend that I was going to paint something.  We lived together, so it was only fair to give a heads up when adding something to the “to do” list of the weekend and roping off a section of the living room for a messy project. It’s not that I [...]

Background Story

Space, the final frontier. At least, you can say that much of art and New York. There is never enough space to conceptualizer, make, and display art. Even in museums outside of New York, there are precious few locations that can accommodate more than a few large sculptures, let alone an awe inspiring behemoth such [...]

Girls and play with art work

User experience for art User testing is important for many products. Art just doesn’t strike me as one of those. So, it took an actual event to impart what logic should have made abundantly clear. The Maker Faire was the second time I exhibited Shrodinger to the public but the first time that I was [...]

Photographer's reflecting in artwork

Of all the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, one of the easiest to prepare for is the creation of your next project. Like every such event, you should have lots of pictures of the process and your only chance is now. After making the novice mistakes of relying on fuzzy photographs of a (temporarily) working circuit with an iPhone 2G and arranging for people to demonstrate a piece without taking lighting into account, I want to spare you the same agonies.

Along with my upcoming display of the updated Schrodinger, I just received notice that I will also be giving a talk at the annual New York Maker Faire. If you are in the area and interested, the event is lots of fun and you can hear my talk “Don’t Forget Your Camera: Lessons Learned in [...]

Is a nightmare. It was exciting to participate in CollisionCollective’s show, but even getting a 4x1x1 foot sculpture from New York to Boston is troublesome. Getting it back can be an even greater headache. Certainly, there have been many occasions where I have had to move my work. In school, space was not consistent. While [...]

Hot off its return from Boston, Schrodinger will be on display at the Maker Faire. In the mean time, I’ll have a few exciting tweaks to introduce. If you are in the New York metropolitan area, come see the new, improved Schrodinger at: Sep. 21 & 22, 2013 New York Hall of Science, Queens, NY [...]
