Ferret: 4 min. aims to streamline the tutorial experience by creating a makeup applying cyborg from found tutorials. Taking cues from a need to learn more, learn faster and learn better a face is sectioned into application segments to help focus on the actions to put on, rub in, work with, spread and smear. The culmination resulting in a hypnotic hum of voices and gestures whose charm is found in their common goal and dismay in the ceaseless pursuit of an ever-changing goal.

Add To Cart

Elissa Rae Ecker (b. 1984, Minnesota, USA) is an interdisciplinary maker, curator and lecturer currently working in Bangkok, Thailand. She holds a BFA in painting from the Peck School of the Arts at The University of Milwaukee and an MFA in Art Practice from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Elissa’s project-based practice questions traditional gender roles while playing with the absurdities of current visible traditions she experiences in Asia and from her rural upbringing in the USA. Often wry in execution, her work spans object making, time-based media and net-art experiments. As a founding member of LIV_ID art collective (Bangkok based) she also facilitates art experiences beyond typical art world boundaries. Elissa’s work has been shown internationally, with recent exhibitions included in the Bangkok Biennial, Thailand (2018) and in the former Robert Miller Gallery Space in New York, USA (2018).
