Content-Aware: Eli Craven
Eli Craven is an interdisciplinary artist based in Champaign, Illinois. His work explores the role of images and objects within the development of identity, memory, and desire. The acts of looking and collecting are central to his process. Each project begins with a search for redeemable sources at estate sales, thrift stores, and digital archives. Through methods of photography, video, sculpture, and collage, the reclaimed materials are charged with new possibilities directed at the senses – the familiar, the bizarre, the boring, the erotic. His work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally including at the Capture Photography Festival in Vancouver, British Columbia and in the book Unlocked, from Atopos CVC in Athens, Greece.
