Eliza Evans’ work addresses the now permanent marriage of the mechanical and the organic, systemization and lived experience. She works with paper, construction materials, plastic, trees, rock, wire, cabling, electronics and lighting to instantiate the technological mediation of everyday life and the cumulative impact of this mediation over time. Her work has been exhibited in Santa Fe, Austin and New York. She has attended residencies at Byrdcliffe and Internationale Sommerakademie für Bildende Kunst Salzburg. Before turning to art, Evans was economic sociologist with a background in qualitative and quantitative methods, network theory, and technology commercialization. She received a BA from Oberlin College, a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and an MFA from SUNY Purchase. Evans was raised in rural TN and lives and works in Brooklyn NY.
