Eli Show


Artist from the midwest that currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. A maker of things is a good title for me because I tend to jump around in between mediums. I enjoy the process of creating and it seems absurd to limit that direction. I believe this is the time of multidisciplines.  

Through my work I am trying to engineer an in-between of digital and physical presence. My work is influenced by chance and chaos processes in the physical world and then manipulated digitally to present an echo or glimpse at a natural process. I tend to use references that speak to natural formations like wood grain, waves or even internal organs. I am influenced by explorations of systems, science and play. My current body of work is a poetic ode to the cycles of life primarily looking at its entrance and exit.

I am currently furthering this work by working with large fabric prints that react to vibrations and bass rhythms to create movement that makes sound more physical. I am also looking into the potentials of creating self sufficient systems of sustainable living tech. Putting together machines that can perpetuate themselves in a loop like a fan powering a wind turbine that provides power to the fan. I am looking to create pauses and ruminate on the cycles of the world and our obsession with repetition and loops.
