Artist Shannon Ebner’s work is part of an ongoing, multimedia, and genre-defying project that began in 2016. Comprised of audio recordings, photographs, and literary components, Ebner’s STRAY investigates the ways in which objects and language can shift away from their intended uses, creating new meanings in the process. Through examining these limits, she explores the role of the artist in the act of creation.
