Elizabeth Block

Elizabeth Block is a filmmaker, an artist, and an award-winning writer of poetry and fiction. Her writing has been published in a variety of literary journals and magazines, and on the internet. Her writing includes the novel, A Gesture through Time, a hybrid work of prose, poetry, textual flip book, and scripted story of obsessive/ambiguous love, death, and unusual cinematic history. She believes film--in its abstract, sensual, and lit-up personas--may cajole and elucidate the idea of language as a material articulation of perception, and she likes to get her hands dirty in material things. In this capacity, she feels her work as a poet and a filmmaker intertwine. She also adores dyslexifying digital media as (although arrived) dis-evolution after celluloid. She is currently touring her film work across the United States in festival, micro cinema, and museum venues. Her collaborative text/sound art (with Warren Burt) has been internationally performed and broadcast, and her photography has appeared in art spaces throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
