"Smile" by Elizabeth Fuller

We are already cyborg constructs. While we may keep the original organic base unit of the human body, we have extended ourselves through omnipresent digital windows of computers and phones into a digital ecosystem. Our feelings are no longer limited to the function of muscles pulling and pushing flesh and fat to compose an expression. […]

There’s no art To find the mind’s construction in the face: He was a gentleman on whom I built An absolute trust. – MacBeth, William Shakespeare I cannot pretend to know the intricacies at work in the hearts of men. But in the baffling world of words, in our attempts to convey sentiment, we have […]

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

Parabox - a rubber ducky is contained in a box of mirrored plexiglas and only visible when there is no one closely observing it.

Parabox Interactivity Interactivity is not reactivity. It is frequently confused as such, but distinct. Reactivity is a direct causal reaction to input. You flip a switch, the light turns on. Interactivity is flexible and acknowledges the intricacies of how we interface with other people and technology. To create an interactive art piece, then, the question […]

You are what you eat

You Are What You Eat I do not consider myself a civic recycler. I do not sort my paper and plastic out of some higher ideal. I do not carry a fabric bag to and from the grocery store rather than rely on their disposable bags due to some tree hugging urge. I do not […]
