Lizzy Sampson researches economies, resources, consumption, public service, work, energy and mining, company towns, exchange, localisation, bureaucracy, ownership, environment, movement and stillness through her arts practice.

Her works span visual and experimental artforms, and she practices collaboratively and as a solo artist. Recently these artforms have included online databases, performance, wood whittling, video, mapping, walking, word-play, installation, photography and painting.

Through devices such as shifts in language or function, or by using materials selected for their inherent associations with environmentalism, capitalism or consumerism, her work questions and subverts the structures we accept and live by as best practice in Australia and the West.
