Elizabeth Skadden


"What can we learn in documenting the passing of the present? My work resurrects forgotten cultures and hidden spaces in the form of installation, film, and GPS projects. This interest has compelled me to explore abandoned buildings, all formats of analog media, and the corner lot. These spaces and mediums unintentionally hold imprints of our culture. The first-hand works of the Greek poetess Sappho are largely destroyed. yet citations in other ancient writers have brought her works to modernity. Likewise, my work rescues a scrap of a dead medium or preserves a lost space by engaging it again with the present."
