Elizabeth Riley: The Life of a City
May 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Elizabeth Riley’s video works address questions surrounding the complex relationship between our lived reality and its digital manifestations. The Life of a City follows the timeline of a modern cityscape—from a primordial, prehistoric realm up to the contemporary bustle of a cosmopolitan metropolis. The video opens with a series of abstracted, undulating patterns set in motion by the fervor of creativity and innovation that propels civilization. As the city slowly takes form, each building is delineated by its own frenetic designs. Employing a range of colors to signify the natural elements and materials derived for construction, the structures shift and fade into place to establish a universal skyline.
