Liza McConnell


Compound is a new installation using a low-tech arrangement of lights, lenses and ordinary objects, by Brooklyn based artist Liza McConnell. The installation is part of a two person exhibition on view this month at SmackMellon in NYC. These sculptures disregard digital technology and new media in favor of principles similar to that of a camera obscura and are projected in real-time via small apertures and simple lenses. Liza McConnell is a graduate of Ohio State in sculpture and has been an artist-in-residence at several organizations including the Drawing Center in NYC, and the Mattress Factory in Pittsburg.
