Erica Bailey is a multimedia artist whose work explores themes of alienation, disorientation, indeterminacy, anxiety, and senselessness through built environments of varying scale. Originally from Ohio, she holds a BFA in sculpture from The Ohio State University and an MFA in three-dimensional media from the University of Cincinnati. She has constructed several large-scale installations, including a small, two-story structure, titled The House that was Haunted Before It was Built (2007), at the Aronoff Center for Art and Design at the University of Cincinnati and a second free-standing house project, Telescoping House (2010), for the UnMuseum of the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center. She has been a recent resident artist at the NARS Foundation in Brooklyn.
