Elisa Ferrari works with text, image, and sound. To consider acts and implications of retrieval, she produces projects that manifest as installations, sound walks, artist books, and performance; often addressing or incorporating archival fragments. Ferrari holds a BFA from the University of Architecture of Venice (IUAV) and a MAA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECUAD). From 2013 to 2017 she worked as Events and Exhibitions Curator at VIVO Media Arts Centre. She is currently collaborating with Stacey Ho on a book of graphic scores for deep listening and sound making.

A project by Elisa Ferrari taking place in Vancouver, BC, on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
