Seth Ellis is an artist, and designer. He makes site-specific narratives that explore the stories inherent in material culture, place, and everyday objects. His work utilizes the mass-manufactured artifacts of Modernist industrial society as the loci of installations combining multimedia experience design, local history, and storytelling to trace the webs that connect local communities across time and space. Ellis’ work has shown in galleries, streets, and storefronts, festivals and symposia, in America, Europe, and several points in the Atlantic Ocean.
