Elizabeth Myles is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary filmmaker and animator born and raised in Oklahoma City. She graduated from the University of Chicago in 2020 with a B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies. Her interest in moving images and the possibility of freedom within structured repetitive acts drives her video and animated work, which is also informed by her ongoing classical cello practice. By combining traditional film techniques with experimental animation, her work uncovers significant themes of interior spaces and explorations of Blackness.
