During her residency at AIR 3331, Eliza Soroga will be presenting "Post-confession room", a multi-media participatory installation which creates an open setting for participants to take a seat and, if they wish, to share what they did yesterday with the other visitors through multi-channel headphones. Participants are invited either to take part by sharing their previous day experiences or by choosing the story they want to hear real-time through multi-channel headphones.
Eliza invites you to join her confession room of the future!

Working across forms and artistic languages within contemporary art practice such as performance, video art, film documentary, installation and public art, Eliza's work is an attempt to explore the dialogue between everyday life and performance.
Her process is site-sensitive, incorporating the reality of the chosen sites, while exploring dynamic interdisciplinary methods such as performance art, mixed media and sound art in what can be called a "tableau vivant", or "living picture", aesthetic.
Eliza is the Artistic Director of Re-Inventing Public Spaces and co-founder of the Performance Architecture School.
