In their artistic practice, Anderson both investigates and celebrates the mundanity and absurdity of ordinary objects, creating works that blur the line between functional and nonfunctional.
Through sculpture, video, and performance, they experiment with materials and objects, often using time consuming processes, which allows more time to become familiar with and form a relationship to the work. Through themes of trauma, humor, religion, and internet culture, Anderson continues to explore the line between comedy and sadness.
Alise was a student at the San Francisco Arts Institute.
