Summary
Eliot engages the conversation of language, meaning, and colonized perception of objects. This work challenges the dialogue around decentering Western knowledge of individuality, wholeness and autonomy. The artist hacks to machines of meaning and identity by creating ambiguous situations that leave space for questions. By using his personal experiences, the artist examines the problematic ways craft is perceived in our American culture. Using ceramic, wood and found objects, Eliot creates installations, utilizing his personal narrative, the writings of Annie Dillard and historical research. The result is messy and precarious objects that create an ambiguous space for unbalanced communication and unknown meaning. Through the process of creation, the artist sees himself as related to the forces of objects - not defined by them
