ERIDAN is the collaborative efforts of Eri King and Daniel Greer. Their body of work is informed by handmade processes applied to various modes of making such as fiber sculptures, installation art, drawing, and performance. They are driven by the dialogue of value, consumer culture, and planned obsolescence, and accordingly work under the ethos: “Our hand is the machine that makes the art”. They engage found everyday materials in an eclectic manner not only to utilize their symbolic and contextual power, but also to express the freedom of making art with anything and seeing art in everything. Their mediums include found objects, textiles, assemblage, various drawing techniques, plastics, and food products utilizing various hand-craft techniques.

Eri and Daniel met early in 2015 and after realizing they work from similar conceptual platforms, they began collaborating on specific projects.  The duo quickly realized that working as a team enhanced the speed of completing works through their rigorous approach to process. Beyond these advantages, Eridan recognized their collaborative processes were something to be explored directly, which is something they included in their ethos and approach more deeply with each project.
