Recent Art Commissions using Repurposed Materials

Some of my commissions since graduating in 2008 with a BFA in Sculpture:

Elizabeth Symington
LED Lanterns, 2010
tallest light is about 1.5 feet
plastic containers (duck soap pump, laundry detergent caps...), bouncy balls, stiffened ribbon

Elizabeth Symington
Bouncy Ball Curtain, 2010
59" x 90"
950 bouncy balls (AKA super balls), crazy straws

Elizabeth Symington
Cactus Lights, 2009
approx. 10', 11' and 12' tall
black elastic, plastic containers, LEDs

Do you have a blank space in your home or office that needs something creative?
I can design and create an art installation using repurposed materials in unusual ways.

Or are you an artist seeking a studio assistant? Over the past five years, I've assisted seven visual artists from the art making to paperwork. We can set up a weekly appointment or by the project.

Please contact me to get things started: elizabeth at elizabethsymington dot com

I look forward to hearing from you.
