Cara Elizabeth
Video /Performance Artist & Experimental Animator

I AM A PIONEER IN POST-TRAUMATIC POP. THIS APPROACH TO ART DECONSTRUCTS AND RECONSTRUCTS AMERICAN POP CULTURE WITHIN A FOUNDATION OF TRUTH. I CO-OPT THE CULT OF CELEBRITY AS A VEHICLE AND UNVEIL THE INHERENT LIES TAUGHT TO US BY OUR MEDIA, OUR POLITICAL LEADERS AND EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. MY ART ADDRESSES THE ENSLAVEMENT/BONDAGE OF WOMEN AND THE EFFECTS OF PORNOGRAPHY MANIFESTED IN OUR POPULAR CULTURE.
I HOLD A B.A. IN PAINTING FROM MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGE OF ART IN BOSTON AND AND A M.A. IN EXPERIMENTAL ANIMATION FROM THE CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS IN LOS ANGELES. MY GRADUATE THESIS WAS "BORNAGAINPOP THE TV SHOW". IN 2013, RYAN CASSIDAY AND ANTHONY LOPEZ HAVE COLLABORATED IN “BORNAGAINPOP'S CULT OF CELEBRITY” WEB SERIES SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE IN FALL 2014.
