"Sono Ignis” translates as sound fire, with a deeper semiotic meaning of bells pealing, and burning light. This installation works to connect our physiological awareness to humanity's collective primal origins by utilizing video and sound to create a sensory experience. This thesis exhibition is presented by Elizabeth J. Sciore-Jones, who is a 2017 M.F.A. Candidate at Herron School of Art and Design.

Sono Ignis


“Art is my way of a “reintegrative forming of become an aid to the cognition that has material content” ( Husselr).  In my life I work to cultivate information about the landscape, sacred space, and the connection between archeology and contemporary anthropology.  This meeting between experiential data and learned information allows for intuitive creation in my making.  I use this melding to create artistic studies relating to my personal connection to the landscape and humanities collective concepts of symbology.”

Born in Ithaca, New York, Elizabeth grew up exploring the wilderness, practicing meditation and studying ecology.  She then moved to NYC to attend the School of Visual Arts, earning a B.F.A. in Photography and Printmaking, 2008.  In the past 10 years she has journeyed across the United States by car over eight times interspersed with international travel; studying culture, creating community and making art.  Most recently Elizabeth is an Instructor and 2017 M.F.A. Candidate at the Herron School of Art and Design, focused on Photography, Video, Fiber Arts and Intermedia.
