Elizabeth Morisette creates artwork which responds to the society in which we live. Her work is created with recycled or repurposed materials. Stationary: An Exhibit of Supply & Demand features a series of work created by using mass amounts of several different types of office supplies. By weaving large quantities of office supplies into wall hangings and baskets, Elizabeth Morisette employs the viewer to think about the supply and demand of items in our workspaces (and the rest of our lives), and ask if the supply is necessary at all.
